Whoms Bern Jones? and why is somebody still trying to tell me there are stock Sportster out there?

Sportsters aren't for everybody, and anybody who buys one with the intention of leaving it stock should buy the other "H" bike.

A stock Sportster is a finely restored 1957 model.

As a final shot, personalize them.. don't butcher them, 50 years from now somebody may want to restore it (back to stock).

Bernjones, I'm sure you work very hard for your money. Don't use you're hard earned money to modify your bike. Harley tells me it's already customized at the factory. :smoke

I voted no because there wasn't an option for:

"I would hope not"

Sportsters were intended to be modified by their "creator", Willie Davidson that is.

I have mentally bought this bike, now all I have to do is write the check. I will keep it stock except for.................

Well the air cleaner cover is already going to be black to match the bars and front forks. Otherwise, just stock I swear:p

Hell, I never even rode mine stock, I had already decided what I wanted and had it installed before ever picking it up....with new pipes, seat, sissy bar and engine guard since then I have changed out the grips, pegs, tail light, license plate holder, throwover bags, tool bag, QD windshield and made engine guard chaps for her. Now the chrome is wearing off of my "HD flame pegs" that I have had a little over a year maybe year & a half, what kind of crap are they made of?

Just say no to chrome for that nightster, sportster, greenster, thingster.

I picked up the bike at 6:00 pm. I only got in 38 mile ride before it was dark, and headed home. Love the bike. Damn. I can't wait for day break. I got a $750 gift certificate. SO....I ordered the black air cleaner. When I ride the bike I look down I see all black and of course the Olive, and then I see this grey air cleaner cover, it just doesn't work for me. It really should have been black... that Willi G really knows how to make you spend your hard earned, not me of course cuz I had the gift cert. Oh, also bought some smoked lenses, but can only use 2 of them, the back lights are the turn signals and the brakes so they have to stay red, it's the LAW! And had to buy my husband a chrome tool box for his Deluxe and I still have $589 left. So tomorrow, new helmet (flat black of course) and a fork bag, and :p OH BABY Love the bike. It looks really good, feels great, rides great. It is really low and you do feel the bumps.

Cool!!!! Looking forward to seeing it on the Jersey run! It seems pretty quiet though. Maybe it's time to think about some slip-ons!

BernJones,
I put the smoke lenses on mine as well. I replaced the clear bulbs in the rear with these super bright red leds. http://www.jamstrait.com/1157s.htm
They were the super reds. I got a pair at the local auto parts store for $14.99. They look sweet behind the smoke lenses. I may replace the amber ones with the same style but amber color.
