This may be the wrong section but, I saw a sportster with a set of Buell forks / triple trees with drag bars a few weeks ago in Hell Michigan (Damn Side Inn), it looked bad as (well) Hell! The bike also had what looked like a swing arm off a rice burner? (Aluminum) with a pretty fat tire and a solo seat, I wish I had a camera to get some photos because after thinking about I may want to do something like this for my winter project as I already have a sporty, that is I can borrow my wife’s for a donor, anyone do this or seen any thing similar??

The forks are from a Buell, but the triple trees are custom made by Banke.
The swingarm is a JMC from England.
Wheels are Buell, with custom spacers and fab work.

I rode there with a little over 100 other guys and haven't found one of them that took photos yet, that would be cool if you got some, I think it had a small orange fairing also?

Found Them

These pictures were from late summer 2004, so he may have made some changes. I didn't get to talk to the guy We were leaving and I saw this thing, it so floored me I just grabbed my camera and took a couple snaps.

BTW I think the bars are clip-ons not drag bars. real racer stuff here.





I would have to say this is the nicest looking Sporty I have EVER seen, at least for MY tastes

To the owner.. GREAT JOB
