I think the bike is nice, but check out the asking price - for an 883!

He said it's a 1200 now and it looks like 80 spoke rims. Extra seat, white wall tires, exhaust, chopped rear fender and AC. It's the last carb Sporty. The ad also says OBO. He may have more than $11,000 into it, $9000 is a bit high for a 3 year old Sporty but a good starting price IMO. My 2ó.

I agree with BobF, my only comment would be that I don't think white walls really fit that bike, they kinda make it look "spindly".

If the title doesn't say 1200cc then its an 883 for selling purposes.
