    Welcome to HDTalking Alpina! Now that is a "CUSTOM" Sportster...Amazing, let's hear the details and please, more pictures. :s

    Made me think about what the definition of a "CUSTOM" bike when reading it rather than seeing it...!:D

    Cheers on the comments lads...The biking days had to come to an end due to health issues, but was adamant to find an alternative route so surfed & surfed for ideas as I was not extatic with was available to me. Eventually I came up with the low slung raked out idea, if I could get a kit that was not too wide, one I used was 4'6" wall to wall. Eventually sourced the front end through AME choppers in Germany, actual trike kit from the US, accumulated eleven boxes of goodies in the garage from Kuryakyn/A.Ness/Mamas & Papas etc & started...
