Alright guys first off im a brand new harley owner ive been riding for only about 5 years now..first harley first cruiser and loving it so far. Im a corpsman stationed in 29 palms cali..which is in the middle of nowhere so its been a pain for me to track down parts..the nearest harley dealership is about an hour away and they are tiny. But anyway i have an 08 sportster XL 883 with only 2k miles on it..i bought it with the intent of owning it for a long time riding a ton and slowly customizing it to be my dream bike..right now i keep going back and forth between the cafe racer look/old school rat bike look im debating between..mini apes/zbars or some clip ons for that cafe racer look..i will every now and then be pulling some long rides but i dont think the clip ons would be TOO uncomfortable. Im also def thinking a solo springer seat would really add a nice touch to the look im going for..and eventually a matt black paint job to resemble the nightster type of look would be great although im saving that for last because it will be expensive. Any ideas..suggestions..pictures..would be greatly appreciated..ive done quite a bit of research online and cant find too many newer sportsters like mine with the mods i mentioned although ive found some. Just hoping for some opinions or experiences because i cant make up my mind on some of the options, thanks a lot! Oh and of course id like to be as cost effective as possible and do all of my own work, thanks!
