Meet my new bike

I've still got Goldie the Gixxer, the new arrival is a second bike for relaxed rides on sunny days :sunglasses:

I've always fancied getting one of these, so when a good deal came along I decided to go for it...

I know it won't be to everyone's taste, so just remember the old saying - if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all! :winkie:

Nice sunny day bike Dave c

Only thing that spoils it (for me) is that peanut tank.


I have seen a Sportster with a lower, nicely rounded (possibly bigger) tank but not sure what model it is?

Anyway a little bit of money would buy a nicer tank, job sorted. But that's just me. Do you like the tank?

If the 883

gets a bit breathless, you could convert it to the 1200 releatively cheaply. With the 883 gearing you end up with a really punchy sportster.

You're on the same wavelength as me - both bikes should be different types/styles. Not sure what bike No.3 should be though :winkie:

 

stevedeejay Thanks mate, fingers crossed for good weather :sunglasses:

Cheers. I quite like the detailing on the tank, it actually holds 12 litres, which at harley speeds should give at least 100-120 miles with some left in reserve. I think the tank you've seen might the the 17L job from the 1200cc Sportsters.

As far as I'm aware there's an even smaller peanut tank, but why...?
