Default My 2001 off-road Sportster 1200

I just put together an off-road / adventure type Sportster. It's street legal complete with blinkers. 15" shocks on the rear with 3" over tubes on the front. I am still running the belt drive since I don't really do any serious off roading. I may actually keep the belt since it works so well. Thought I would post up a few pics.

Thanks for posting - We always like to see pictures of Sportsters.

The basic canvas allows a lot of different implementations to suit your needs or vision...

Cool lift on the leg...

Good sugar sand setup. Nicely done.

I raised the original front fender 4 inches. I think it looks more like a factory built Harley with this setup. I'm debating on whether or not to add HD bar and shield emblems to the gas tank.
