Not a 1200 Custom as they didn't make em in 1990, but I built close to a custom with the stock 2.2 peanut.

dave76,

Nice job. I like your 1990. The paint looks like the 1998 95th anniversary edition. I bet is a comfortable ride with those apes. thank you for the photo. Aren't sportsters cool?

Hogwylde,

Thanx for your photo of your 1999. The black pipes really sets the bike off against the natural finish of your engine.

Here's my '92
Not finished yet, I'm in the process of lengthening the swingarm 3"

Updating my pics.





As you can tell, I like the Willie G skull. Its common but shrug, its me ... Anyhow, I want to figure out a way to get one on the derby spot. The normal one doesnt fit cause of the year difference and with the skin I have on there, there isnt a derby cover visible at all anyhow.

bval,

Wow! Your 1992 looks really cool. I had to look twice at it to make sure it was a Sportster. The fat-bob slpit tanks with the center dash is really neat. I'm impressed. Thanx for posting your photo, and good luck with all of the other mods your working on.

Aeris-Logan,

Thank you for the updated photos. You were right. Your bike does look better without the winged logo on the tank. It looks more "updated", if you will. Very nice.

I just need to finish the paint job on the tank. It has some marks from the grinding wheel and it needs a few more coats.

Aeris-Logan,

Keep going, because the bike really looks 100 X (times) better. Isn't great when you do stuff to your bike and it looks or performs so much better? -Very gratifying. Especially, when you do it yourself.
