    what happened to the seat?


    … you should ask him what it does the quarter mile in,
    the Harley Street 750 apparently pulls 13.69 seconds at 93.8 mph and a stock iron 883 does 14.53 at 90.8 mph That might be a reasonable gauge of how it runs, especially if he can't better either of those numbers

    Experiment gone wrong maybe...?
    Seats are definitely gotta go imo. Seems like there are a few direct fit cafe racer seats available for this model.

    No Phil Little parts? no care.

    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.

    I don't think the Phil little stuff fits after 2002 very well.

    There seems to be something odd with the footpegs. In the ad he mentioned a footpeg relocation kit, but it looks they have been moved a bit forward.
    That seat is just fugly.

    I had a bone stock '94 883 for a few years and after learning that you had to pretty much keep it at WOT and not shift into 5th until 80mph it was a pretty good bike except for the crappy 1 1/2 inch travel rear shocks.

    A buddy had a 2004, and I liked the 94 much better- it just felt more substantial.

    I take it Florida does not have inspections?
    Every time I start thinking the world is all bad, then I start seeing people out there having a good time on motorcycles. It makes me take another look. - S.M.

    Thanks for the input. I'm guessing the foot peg was moved to clear the pipes.
