Kantellyou is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Sick Bike

hello everyone!

I am inlove with the bike below:


can anyone tell me any info on this bike?
ie: is the front lowered or is just the rake? how much rake?
is the rear stretched/lowered?

i own a 2010 883 Iron and im trying to get my bike to look as close to this one as possible.

if you have any idea on the mods done to this bike please let me know.

it looks like a 3-4 dregree rake to me with a drag bar, the rear looks stretched (i say that because of the rear swing arm looks different), the rear looks lowered but hard to tell since its also a different rear shock.

again any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

From what I can see right off, fender mounted to swingarm, relocated shock mount to rear, chain conversion, possible slight swingarm extension, fork tubes lowered in triples, changed bars, relocated electronics from under seat to somewhere else, small seat.

Looks like a non standard front fender, indicators front and back relocated and changed to smaller ones.

IMO that bikes also screaming for the coil being moved, depends on the bike whether I like it done or not but on that one it'd look cool methinks

Looks like a wide tire conversion on the rear, hence the chain, and the rear tire sidewalls look a little fatter. Looks good.
