Default Like I needed another project

Not sure if there is any interest in these ole bikes around here or not. But I figured I'd start a thread and see. I have no real plan or any direction really so who knows where this will head. Im in no rush as other projects come first so this could take a while.

Couple months ago my sister told me my little brother was selling his bike. I'd been following his build on IG and kinda liked the direction he was headed. He just lost interest and was onto something else I was told. Well after talking with him some over the next few months, we agreed on a price, and a road trip was in order. Got up there and the bike was a good bit different than I had expected, but still we made a deal. So I strapped her to the back of the Crown Vic and headed home. Yeah, its a Harley and yes its bloody heavy. Always liked them but never had a hard desire to buy one, until now.



Now I got the bike home and started piecing the pieces back together. Original plan was to finish putting her back together and ride it like my brother built it. But that has changed. I did manage to get it almost together








Eventually the OCD won and now I'm staring at bits and pieces. Luckily these bikes lend to all sorts of modifications so something cool may come outa this one day

That ain't no harley, that's a sportster....

Did you buy that so your old lady got something to ride....




Do you know what year that motor is? Know of anything done to it? The collapsible push rod tubes would indicate adjustable push rods, not sure if any year evo sporty had those...

2003 and earlier you can put the heads on first and then drop the rods in place. 04' and later you can't do this with. Usually the easiest visual indicator for sporty id is if it has split tappets which would be 1990 or earlier

Nope, she's all mine

What I'm told is-
88 883 originally
1200 jugs
Wiseco pistons
86 cyl heads ( supposed higher compression )
Barnett clutch
And something about a jap stator I think ( memory not what it used to be)

That's about all I know.

Sounds like a good setup. Just missing some big nasty Andrews cams and you'll be all set. Maybe a 1250 kit?
