    I only have the photo, but its what I am aiming for:) With 2 seats...

    No one? Also is it possible to have the foot rests in the normal posisjon with that kind of pipes or will I burn? Have survided a bad crash tanks to normal pegs, was able to jump up. So that the car destroyed my bike, but I somersalted over it;)

    Are you sure it is a Sportster? I looks like the engine and the trans aren't a single unit. As for the foot pegs, I think you'll be OK. If not, just extend the peg a couple inches .

    It is defiantly a sportster as the push rod tubes are parallel and the belt drive is on the right side of the bike
    possibly the front wheel is a 16" which would mean that the whole front end has been replaced with a wide glide front end
    Although the the gear case just looks not right to me but i am not up on the rubber mount sportsters and it has a rubber mount style oil tank

    Looks like a modified/altered Iron w/aftermarket seat. Mid-controls will work, but might not be as comfortable riding position than fwd controls. Good luck!

    It looks like someone cut up a Nightster or a 48.

    I agree with the tourist. Looks like a stripped 48 or nightster, 07' or later.

    The points cover looks like an old shovel, but I think it's a Sportster engine.

    Either that or a guy shoved a V-Twin into a 48 frame. I've seen some weird and wonderful things done that way. I liked the way a guy put shovel jugs on a Sportster lower to gain some inches.

    Could be the other way, though. The frame and engine could be from a big twin, and he scavenged Sportster parts--like the tank and suspension--to make the overall bike smaller and lighter.
