Sporty's?

If you asked me a year or so ago if I would be building sporty's I would have said, NAH! Life is about timing.

Alex O's sporty ready for powder and chrome.

Feeling like we are turning the corner on the sport-tracker.

Sorted the rear brake set up.

You saw it here first, narrowed big twin springer with 23" wheel. No doubt someone will have a narrowed big twin springer on a bike this year, mark my words.

  2. while not with a 23" wheel, i've seen a drastically narrowed servi-car springer... single spring, super skinny, ~6" over, parked in front of a HA club house in SFV pretty often

    Funny you should say that, George is working on my narrowed springer as we speak. But I will be running a puny 21 spoolie.

  5. I want to see the front view of that springer Caleb!I've been wondering how you did it and what it might look like ever since you told me that you were making one.

    I know I'm not the first to do this, but I've never seen it done this way and I've only seen one of these over the years. I should have never posted it, now I know of 3 after I posted.. hahaha

  7. Hate to burst your bubble Caleb, but my dad said 1974 was the year of the narrowed springer. I was only 2 so I dont really remember much.
