Project Pandora war bike

Post by Cadillac » Mon Oct 15, 2012 7:51 pm

I've been working on this bike for a while now. So I'll post a few pictures through it's lifetime. It's a 1999 Harley Sportster 883c.

Day one: When my father bought it (and Identical to when I bought it from him):

The day I bought it from him after having been left out in the weather for a couple of years:

Image

Shortly after getting it, when I thought I wanted to make it a mini bagger (Saddle bags, windshield, Road King air shocks):

Image

Then I got bored of that, and started cutting:

For some reason, two days after I put this solo seat on, I decided it was a great time to move from Road King air shocks, to Biltwell solid struts:

Do to that, I needed something to absorb the bumps a bit:

Image

Then I needed some more light to see what was in front of me, so I upgraded to an 8" Fatboy Headlight:

Image

Fast forward to today:

Took off the struts for the moment, wheel is hanging down. Going to be cutting the fender more and cutting the Fender Struts back. Going to be replacing the exhaust, and painting it desert tan in the coming months, as well as putting much more aggressive tires on it.

It's been a slow process, but it is slowly coming together.

Cut the fender struts and fender down(more) today:

Plans for this winter include paint, new exhaust, new turn signals, and maybe a few other goodies.

Looking more like a custom/personalized bike now, turning out great. The best/worst part of customizing a bike, like anything else i guess, is that you are never done with it. There will always be a list of things you want to get done. Keep up the good work and keep us posted, I am interested to see where you will be taking it next.

This weekend I am going to drain the tank and mail it and the fender out to my uncle for paint (he owns his own body shop). I think we've decided on flat black with tan racing stripes. After that will be replacing the rear turn signals (I bought ebay bullets and you can't see them hardly at all), 2.5" tank lift, different exhaust, and fork boots. Then I should be happy for a little while, lol.
