            Do you have any build pics, or maybe a list of what you have done? I always wanted a sportster (mainly because im 5'6") but never thought they had that cool factor till now. I thought of getting a 1200, but how does the 883 do?

              The 883 does more than enough. When i put 16" apes and rigid rear struts and a springer seat i really didn't build it for drag races. The bike will definately go where you want it to go when ya need it though for **** sure. I have pics of the progress that i can put up here.

                            I appreciate it man. I love apes and unless it's my worn out body making me go lower i don't think i'll ever own a bike without em
