    It's about what a used '04 883 goes for stock. I mean I wouldn't buy it, I'd buy a 1200 sporty and phil little's kit so it isn't horribly overpriced.
    Where can i find PLR kit? Couldn't find it on their website.

    We're talking about lipstick on a pig.

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

    SXR Street Tracker - Phil Little Racing ~ Vintage Racing Motorcycle and Snowmobile Parts

    i think the cutoff is 2008 models because they are fuel injected, better to check with him.

    Now ow before you go "that's a street tracker derp-a-derp" I want you to consider something: most of Harley's racing heritage is in Sportsters racing flat track so any race replica is going to use flat track parts. Even when the motor company made their own factory cafe racer, the XLCR, they used flat track styled bodywork. With Phil little's kit all I would do if I wanted to look more road race and less dirt track is swap out the number plate and slideaway bars for some clipons and a emgo viper fairing.

    I would question the choice in shocks. Yes, the RFY shocks can be made to work well, but I doubt that 1. They were rebuilt, because he would've mentioned that, and 2. I don't think I would trust them to be strong enough for a bike that heavy.

    The he lower shackles are not that beefy.
    I always find a soap box useful to get on my high horse.

    That makes sense, after all, what is more important on a Harley, the position of the exhaust or the foot pegs

    But this is Lance Wiel's Ironhead in a Featherbed frame and you can't go wrong with something like this:

    No lipstick here, but I don't think this can be reproduced.
