Default Lets See Your Seventy Two!

Since there should be plenty of new 72s out there I figured it was time to start a picture thread so we can see what they all look like and you can update pics as you mod the bikes.

So far I have installed Bassani Firepower slip ons and a Sick Saddles seat. Next on my list is the Kuryakyn Velociraptor intake, XIEDs and Coke Bottle grips along with some new foot pegs.

I didn't realize I had such a rare bike. HD added some cool new colors for the 2013 72, Green Flake, Chrome Yellow and Gold Flake. I really like the gold.

thanks for opening the post, i was surprised there wasnt one before ! i believe it will growth to 100+ pages as other sportster efi models, but it will take time the nightster was have 5 yesrs in the market

i just paid my 72 yesterday and planing to pick her up this saturday, so not much to show from the dealer floor right now

i know there are who hate it, but for those who love it this bike has almost everything and i think we wont see super transformations inthe short term as in the irons or 48, but time will tell

big congrats on the new bike you will love it i'm sure but you'll be wanting a more comfy seat as the stock one is a killer after 1 hour or so.
what colour did you get ?
i love my red beast to bits but i really really like the new green

Can't wait to see some green flake and gold flake 72s. In the meantime, here is my bike with all the mods so far. Installed Bassani Firepower slip ons, Velociraptor air intake, DK Customs Flying Knuckle footpegs with HD skull shifter, Sick Saddles seat, Avon red flake grips and a chrome timing cover. Bike is going to the dealer next week for its 1000 mile service and will see about having the dealer do a tune/remap. I also have XIEDs that I'm undecided about.
