I think this is more of a Bar Hopper but its got some bobber in it...This was actually the first sporty I ever rode and the one responsible for me buying a sportster in the first place.

It was an 85 883XL that my buddy put together. He let me take it out for a spin and it sure tickled my pickle! It was sold to a guy from New Mexico. He actually flew in from NM to Florida and rode the bike back to NM!
