Harley-Davidson Sportster description
Here is crowds favorite, a retro, '60s British racer style motorcycle (except A LOT more reliable!) built by Moto Nisto (nr.8) using a Harley Davidson 1200cc engine. 2 into 2 free-breathing exhaust with headers made from stainless steel, K&N filter and carburetor dialed in. It is about 20lbs lighter than a stock Sportster and it tops out at over 125mph, not bad for a Harley! Even so it still gets about 50mpg! Might not be as fast as a modern metric bike but it's one of the coolest Harleys out there. Air cooled, self adjusting valvetrain, super dependable and plenty of parts available. A pleasure to ride, with a lot of torque and crisp handling. Custom built as follows: aluminum wheels with retro tire treads and sizes, custom front fender and struts, cleaned legs, rubber gaters and aluminum clip-on with steel handlebars. The 7" vintage headlight housing holds a readily available bulb and it has a cool stainless steel protective grill mesh. The gauges, buttons, horn and turn signals were unplugged and removed for aesthetics and simplicity. The aluminum dashboard has three idiot lights, internationally colored for high-beam (blue), neutral (green) and check engine (orange). Clutch lever received a Teflon coated inner wire and an easy-pull device for effortless engagement. The fuel tank is a 4gallon cafe racer style tank with knee cut-outs, handlebar clearance indents, flip cap and dual petcocks. The seat is a vintage Ducati fiberglass replica and is upholstered with high density foam. The tail light is a simple and round, reliable LED. Custom made rear-set foot controls for a comfortable seating position. The belt drive was converted to chain for ease of ratio adjustments and retro looks. The front sprocket cover is also modified for a retro look with rounded profile. Tires have about half life left. It functions flawlessly and is truly a one of a kind cafe racer, it turns heads wherever it goes. But if you prefer a more vintage looking cruiser I have another one for sale, so check my other auction and show your interest by bidding.
I should add that if your pant leg inseam is shorter than 32" (if you're under ~5'9 tall) you will not be flat footed with the current rear shocks as the bike seats fairly high off the ground. Also, the drive chain and sprockets should be replaced within next 5k miles.

What happens when you take away a smokin’ hot gymnast’s balance beam and replace it with a Harley-Davidson Fat Bob? It’s only 30 seconds but who’s to stop you from playing it over and over again? Now what would be even more amazing is if there was a dude riding that bike on the highway while she did that. What would be a million times more amazing would be if that dude was me.
