OK so i picked up a super clean 1999 sporty.

In the process of making a new Sportster direct fit cafe seat for you guys, i figured lets make a cool bike too!

Cut off the stock rear fender mounts and cleaned them up

Grabbed a 1″ frame hoop off the shelf and trimmed it down to size, had to spread it open a bit to match the
Harley frame. Then cut the funky angle into the end of it…
