    As he is on a solid mount sportster the fuel tank is not larger but has a different seat forward controls and a 21" front wheel

    larger fuel tank is on the rubber mount custom

    The longer it takes and the harder it is to get to all make that first ride really something special
    Hang on in there and you will get on that bike
