Congrats on the 'new' bike --- Read my build thread (in my sig) about tubs of parts...

Your profile says you have a 2002 also? That should be very close on most items - 1998-2003 had a lot of compatible parts... So if you've worked on the 2002, that experience should transfer quite well...

You can check out the history section of the Sportsterpedia to see if any big things changed between the two years: http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/s...ection19901999

1998 was the first year for the Nosecone Ignition - They were failure prone due to the elevated heat location - Many guys have replaced the OEM unit with an Ultima ignition module... Have you done that on the 2002?

If you're not fond of the Green Apple paint, you could try selling those to fund buying what you want in tins...

If you really need help identifying stuff, lay out a tarp, spread out the parts, take pics - post them here for identification...

Got room in my shop for another project. No frigging money though. Just dropped $3500.00 into Holly's purse for her 1983 XLS stock 1000cc Ironhead. I know the original owner.

She was sweating county taxes this year. I figured I would keep her scooter in the family and just pretend it is mine now. My hardtail build is coming along slowly but surely. Gathering parts. Hope your shed is getting big enough for all this gear you are acquiring. Boys and their toys. My latest toy. A M200 Norstar wire feed welder. With a rolling cart. Needs a argon bottle and regulator hose. Brand new. Fell of a truck. At least. That was what the Mexican told me.

I have survived on my Dads old 200 amp WestingHouse multi plug 1950's Farm Welder long enough.

Time for a 2nd job Fred. Or. Deal drugs.

Howdy and Welcome. Fiona.

IXL2Relax, thanks for reminding me to update my info. Traded the 02 off in the summer. I'm holding steady at 3 bikes, if I don't count the 82 I really need to just part out. ;-)

As I piddle around in my garage, I look over Fiona a lot, wondering where to even start. I thought it would be nice to have a front brake first, just for the reason that moving it around or off the table lift would be easier if I had a brake. I'm always disappointed when I look at the parts box, because so many fasteners are missing. The large axle nut for the front end is obviously MIA. I'm wondering; micro fisch and repair manuals don't have actual nut and bolt sizes. Do parts manuals, or do they just show part numbers?

I know in the late model parts manuals they list fastener size for many of the bolts/nuts. I have no idea in the early EVO ones. It's a separate list in the back with part number and fastener size.

Back when I had a lathe and punched a time clock at Tonka Toys.

I took my axles to the tool room and used the rockwell hardness tester on em.
I learned they are nothing but cold rolled steel.
So I had the toolroom make me a few spares. Liquor changed hands.

They did me a favor. They used this carbon type of sand/crystals and case hardened the outside of the axles about a micro milimeter thickness when placed in the 4500 degree electric convection oven.

Turned out to be nice axles that are still in my bikes today.

Too bad I don't have a parts manual.

Harley now has the parts manuals online, at least for later models. Not sure if there is a way to get to them without a VIN, but I enter one of my VIN's on this page and then I'm able to drill down into documents and find the parts manual:

https://serviceinfo.harley-davidson....vehicle/lookup

The page seems to indicate 1981 - present, but I searched for a handful of 1998 Sportster VIN's from eBay and they said they weren't found.

After sitting a long time, and the guy that wanted to make payments only making 2 payments in 8 months, I gave him his money back, and included the coffee can. After another month, I remembered one of my best friends mentioning that his college enrolled son was looking to buy a beginners bike. So I called him and gave him a killer deal. They picked it up Saturday. I see he took my advice and started an introduction thread! http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread.php?t=2075303 Ya'll welcome him to the family!
