Default Putting sporty into sportster in Norway

Hi all!
Although I have ridden assorted brands since the early 1980´s, Vespa, Gilera, Suzuki, Kawasaki, BMW, Guzzi, Matchless, Norton,
I'm a Noob to Harley. I bought my first, a 98 sportster 883C 1200 kit, summer 2020.
Currently it lives behind my couch (Yes, Love my wife!), undergoing transformation to scrambler look.
I'm here for tips and tricks for the conversion. And lots of inspiration.
I made a blog of the project that's in the signature. Here is the before picture.


Looking forward to your wisdom.
