Default Iron 883 look

Usually when a sporty becomes a project stock is not the aim. I like how Iron 883 bulky look. Maybe with tankrisers and lowered handlebars and in the darkest black possible. But I love the rigid evo's, I still have a 90 frame with original wheels, shocks etc, just no engine. Have not given it too much thought yet, so any input is welcome. Would it even be possible to get the look?

Bulky? How is it 'bulky'. They have a stock frame, traditional narrow glide fork, regular 19" front wheel, and a standard 3.3 gallon tank.

Nothing bulky about it at all, as far as I can see.

Ah well maybe bulky is not the correct english word for it. But in the translation it was the closest I could find.

The obvious differences would be tank risers, short suspension units and black paint?

Well if the frame dimensions, geometry etc. is about the same. Should not be problem then, was just thinking out loud. Now I just have to find a block I can rebuild.
