I found a nice original front fender for my '83 a couple weeks ago, so I went a little retro with the XLX and put the original tank and seat back on it. First pic was Friday when I finished and had returned from a gas/shakedown run, second pic was early Saturday morning, cloudy and 35 degrees. I rode to breakfast with some friends and took the scenic way home, and that was enough...lol

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.
