Way cool, but if you read the write up in the link, he used an 883, with a 1200CC engine. Small typo? I assume he really stuck with the 883 for mileage?

Haven't been here much since I don't have a sporty anymore.
Got a dual sport camping bike, and my close friend just got a sportster to set up for woods camping.
I'll start a thread as we start the tinkering process.
Looking mainly to be able to carry camping gear on moderate 4x4 tracks for....
Overlanding a Sportster.

The article also said only 6% of the original 883R parts remained. New pistons and headwork would not be difficult.
