I just got a new '08 Nightster. (check out my gallery to see pics) I bought it because I love the old classics, like the early sportster K models & late 20's Indian scouts & such. I think the Nightster has kind of a classic look to it. I plan to enhance that over time. As you can see I have already added the mini apehangers, engine guard, windshield, & teardrop saddlebags. I have also changed the air filter cover to vivid black and added leather fringe grip covers since this pic was taken. I'm planning on changing the seat to a Mustang solo (studded) or a Le Pera Sanora (they should be available for new sportys in late spring) and adding a rack (Motherwell makes a nice one for the N). I'm also think about changing the pipes to the Samson Caliber 2 into 1 black. Would love to get some feedback! Dean (NY)

Welcome to the sight!

I checked out the pics of your bike... I am a big fan of the nightster.
I must say, it was interesting for you to choose that particular bike to install bags and a windshield.

Was that a HD part for the license plate relocation or aftermarket? Please share as others may wonder in the future. Once again welcome!

Welcome to the forum from Southern Michigan. I agree on the old K's and Indian Scouts-I'd give an eye tooth for one!

Thanks for all the warm welcomes guys. Roadking79, thanks for the comments. I wasn't sure about the windshield myself, but since it's removable I went for it. Changing the plate to the rear fender was easy since HD does have an adapter kit for it, it's not on their site though.

I'm a bit late on the welcome; but here it is; welcome to the forum from Australia! Like your bike...looks like a practical solution to carrying things a fair distance, especially if the weather is dubious. Your numberplate relocation kit is also how the International Ns come standard to us.
