Default Sportster Wide Tire Conversion

Been awhile since I last logged in but thought I would share some recent pictures of the completed wide tire conversion of my sporty. Took awhile to sort out all of the bugs but it's finally in good riding shape.

What do you think?

93 XL converted to 1200, 250 wide tire with 3" stretch, wide glide front, and digital speedo (yes you can do it with the older sportsters without too much effort) just to name of the more interesting changes.

Not an introductory thread: moving to the 'Tires, Wheels, And Brakes' section.
