Default 2003 HD 883 Sportster Bobber Project

I just bought my first bike last summer (2003 HD 883 Sportster). I've always loved the way the "old school" bikes looked so I decided to hit the garage with a couple of buddies and start "The Bobber Project." I'll be updating on here with new Pics and parts info both in "My Garage" and in the forum from start to finish. Feel free to ask anything.

It's a Led Sled Customs Hardtail. I'm sticking with the original tank right now, repainting it. No fender upfront and the rear one will be cut off a little more than half of the tire in order to have enough room for a removeable sissy bar and pillow seat.

Changed my mind. The stock gas tank looked put of place on the bobber build. I just got in my new 2.4 gallon tank and will be mounting that on and the rear struts and fender this week. Oh and just put on my new drag bars.
