Default Another transformation coming

As much as I liked the look of the bike that way I did it 10 years ago, I’ve started to want it to look like it did when it was new or at least a classic 80s Sportster.
So off comes the mid glide triple trees, drag bar, and back to all stock gauges and buck horn bars. Thinking about raising it back up too. The bike was never comfortable to ride like this either. The 21” front is coming off also, going with a laced 19”

That’s what Sportsters are all about, make them your own and change directions anytime you want. Go for it, stay safe'

I absolutely love it. I love that classic 80's/90's sportster look. Nothing beats it in my opinion. Wonderful shape too.
