Talking Of Sportsters..........

My old Sporty project has finally resurfaced after a six year re-imagining, Steve has fitted XR1200 heads, barrels and pistons and a Dyna programmable ignition, he’s dug out a set of Ceriani USD forks and had the front wheel replaced to an eighteen inch rim which certainly looks a lot better than the seventeen I originally fitted and sits a lot better I reckon, he’s also fitted a six-pot Harrison Billet front brake caliper  and has an aluminium Stortz tank ready to fit as soon as he can get some mounts welded up, in a moment of synchronicity I mentioned Chad From Hull who made my tank for the old Ducati TT Fakery Formula Two project, [begat the Peaky Blinder] and so the cottage industry of bike building continues.......
