    Skirtster 1200

    With all the HD love on PF these days I thought I should put mine up.

    I've always ridden sports bikes and dirt bikes but after a few close calls on my old Aprilia RSVR doing stupid speeds/things on the street combined with having a couple of kids I gave up on the road bikes.

    I kept an old RD350 for a one day cafe build and my YZ250 2 banger.

    Then dropped in to see an old mate one day and he had this thing sitting on his back deck. He hadn't ridden it in years and offered it to me at a price I couldn't refuse.

    So I dragged it home just before christmas and have been slowly tidying it up.

    It came with the original peanut tank and front/rear guards. All the original lighting, a couple of exhausts, 3 seats, a 21 inch front wheel, panniers and all sorts of other bits and pieces.

    Still have to polish up all the chrome, mount a front guard and sort out a sticking rear caliper then it will go in for rwc and reg.

    It's already got a wide glide front end in it and lowered shocks/springs in the back. It came with lowered front springs too but I figure I'll get it on the road first.

    Then I'll decide if I like it enough to keep it or flip it for something else.

    Have to say that's one ugly looking Sportie! But it's a 1200, and they're a great base to do anything you want with. Keen to see how you get on with it.

    Jeez, that tank...

    Harleys aren't really my thing but I quite like the beater Harley look.

    Get stuck in. You can do anything with sportster.

    They make awesome looking trackers.

    It is powerfully ugly, hoping to have some time to get stuck in to it in the next week or so.

    That tracker looks the goods

    Not many things grows me a cock harder than the steel I put in my cars but that tracker certainly does.

    And that ugly sportster from the OP is just a rattlecan paint job, chopped rear fender, tank, shocks, bars and tyres from being there.

    Being a 1200 it should roost well if provoked.

    haha fair comment

    I was just sitting here looking at mine trying to work out if I need a 21

    Got a few more things to buy for it before it all comes apart, want everything sitting here ready to go so it doesn't drag out like crazy!

    I'm just trying to find the motivation to get out in to the shed to work on the thing, Cold wet Melbourne weather isn't helping.

    Fortunately it came with the original peanut tank and guards in red and a couple of other front and rear guards

    Just a change of tank and tinware would remove a lot of ugly!! Aircleaner and exhaust and a clean and it'd look great. Here's some inspiration for the spare tanks and fenders...

    I actually quite like the exhaust, but it came with two other exhausts as well.

    Aircleaner is a bit wrong, I think it came off a Mk2 Escort

    This has gone in for new tyres, new throttle cables and a rwc.

    It's at my mates shop, Bikecraft, so the trick is to try to avoid getting carried away with heaps of new custom parts

    Excellent. Custom parts are better made than bought, Jump on Chopcult for some ideas.
