Default Sportster Mods

I would like to know what all the sporty riders out there are doing to their bikes to give them that custom feel..

I'm currently changing around the tins, handlebars, speedo, lights, intake, mirrors, derby covers, pipes, etc. I will be getting many parts powder coated krinkle black.

Got any suggestions?

Hi Zach, there really is no way of answering your question! Take a little time to read through other posts on here to see what we are up to. We all have different priorities and ideas, mine is suspension.

The pic is on my profile. So far its the stock 2003 sporty custom with a hyper charger, drag pipes and some other extras. I'm throwing 12 riser tbars on it tomorrow. Possibly some Smokey signals and lights if they come in.

Just do what I do and stare at the bike for a long time thinking about what needs to be changed and change it.

if you want your bike to be custom, maybe dont copy what everyone else does

i agree with mosesHD, just stare at your bike n decide what you dont like about, then look around on the net for an alternative part.
of course there are LOTS of awesome looking bikes on here, for some inspiration.
just troll through some of the threads on here and i have no doubt it will inspire you
