Default My Iron

Here's is my bike and the story about it. It's a 2011 XL883 Iron, bought in summer of 2013. It was already been customized a little from the previous owner. Drag bar, speedo relocation, flipped mirrors, tank raised, forward controls, V&H Short Shots, 48 seat, singel bag from La Rosa. Here's a pic right after I bought it.

That summer I didn't do anything but ride. The following winter it was time to do a little personalization. I mounted new grips and foot pegs from Avon, and slammed it with a kit from Burly. That made a huge difference. I also fitted an air cleaner from RSD and completed stage I with Dynajet Power Vision.

Then past summer the need for ape came in. I went for Road 6 Customs 12" ape and never regret doing so. Much more comfy ride.

This winter I have removed front fender and replaced it with a brace from RSD, new belt cover, also from RSD, a sissy bar from Burly, some better lights with led headlight from Gennsi and mini led turn signals in the front. I have ordered new taillights in same style as the front mini led? The pics I take in my garage become very untidy, so better pics will come when this damned snow is gone.









To attach the front turn signals I had to fabricate two small metal plates.

bike looks good

Any new updates? I think a coil relocation & wire tuck would go a long way for your look
