Default Harley Dual Sportster project underway

For the past 4 weeks I have been slowly putting together my Dual Sportster. I just wanted something different but functional.
since these photos were taken I have added Burley Scrambler bars and Im in the process of building a drive belt tensioner on the exhaust bracket of my new exhaust. Its killing me not installing the new exhaust yet. My oil tank cover and battery cover have been painted OD green also, but im not installing them until the exhaust is done and my FP3 arrives for mapping. Other things already done are Excel aluminum wheels laced to new hubs, cut down rear fender, relocated stock turn signals / tail lights. Relocated license plate. Burley solo seat, burley 15 inch stilletto shocks, lowbrow skid plate, kenda big block tires. More to follow.

With scrambler bars installed, waiting on shorter cables and brake line since this started as a 1200 Iron, it originally had 12 inch apes.

Looks really nice, but I hope you don't regret that bobbed rear fender. If you ever hit mud, it will be all over your backside.
what year is the bike?
