New guy, thought I would do the Intro thing (pics incside)

Sold my 90 FLHS (112K on the odo) and wanted something to play with. Bought this 05 883 Sportster new and started ripping it apart.

So far, I have:
Converted it to 1200cc with Andrews N8 cams
Chopped the frame
Ditched the fenders
Turned down the sliders
Replaced the front end with a custom built wide glide
Running a 16x5 up front to match the rear
Custom tank split and 3" added to up the fuel capacity from 3.2 to 4.25gal.
Gastank side mounted sight guage
Hand built cafe seat with hidden locking copartment
Ford Model A Teardrop brakelight
Buell headers & custom built exhaust
Chopped cam & tranny gear covers
Ness Stage II intake with custom cut a/c cover
70's vintage Olds wheel spinner converted to a gas cap
70's era 8" headlight
Ditched the turnsignals, reflectors, speedo, idiot lights etc
70 Yamaha SR500 tank pads
30" drag bars with bar-end mirror & offside weight

Still planned: Extend the swingarm by 2", got some 70's ladder bars to put on it (Have all the parts for these, just haven't gotten around to it)

This is my daily driver (commuter) bike.
