Hello,

I bought my first Harley last week. Its a 97 883 with a 1200 kit. It has 50,000 miles on it. Drag pipes, Mustang seat, and mini apes(I think?) It runs pretty good other than an occasional hickup at low rpm. I changed the plugs and might get a k&n air filter. I would like different handlbars and forward controls eventually but for now I'm just going to ride.

I like it much better than my first bike which was an 84 Honda GL1200 Standard. Still trying to sell that one.

Thanks for a great forum. I've already learned a lot.

I tried to upload some pics but it failed. Maybe because I'm a new member.

You have to host your pics some place like Photobucket. Then simply copy and paste the image code into the body of a post.

Only paid members can post in the gallery. You'll need to use a photo hosting site and copy and paste the image tag.
