My customized Harley Davidson

Original: A Harley Davidson Sportster Forty-Eight

Picture 1: Harley customized

And that was the original style.
The Harley Davidson Sportster Forty-Eight.
Old school: Fat front wheel, slim mudguard, small head lamp.

Picture 2: Harley, the original style

First of all I installed additionally
- a front shield
- two small head lamps
- a leathern toolbag
- to the left and to the right one black crash bar each.

On a bit larger photo it will look like this:

Because there was not enough room in the toolbag for the rain pants,
I bought this saddle-bag.

And also at the rear end, there have been some changes:
- A wider rear wheel (200/60 B16 instead of 150/80 B16)
- with a correspondent wide tire swing arm
- new shock absorbers.
And that the look comes out better:
- The number plate was transferred to the left side
- the rear fender was shortened
- and more inconspicuous direction indicators installed.

The factory-made PEANUT tank
ensures the typical Sportster silhouette
therefore one should change nothing to that.

But this nice looking tank holds 7.9 liters fuel at most.
The fuel indicator light lights up after just 100 km.
And because, that the tank reserve is not quite excessively,
on a long route there are needed several refuelling stops.

For this reason, the harley got a new tank, a 15 liter tank.
And the motorbike now got a new stylish elephants silhouette.

And again,
on a bit larger photo it will look like this:

Optics - all well and good.
But what really represents a Harley, is its sound.

Therefore here was installed: A Kesstech valve exhaust system
with Electronic Sound Management-Systemen (ESM).
The ESM automatically controls sound and volume,
ensuring that each aspect follows applicable regulations.
The exhaust system has a General Operating Permit (ABE)
and therefore it does not have to be entered into the vehicle documents.
