1997 Sportster 1200 Sport. The best Sportster?

I recently bought a 1997 1200 Sport. Adjustable suspension, dual front disks, fast as hell. After many old Ironheads, Im now an Evo convert. Hell, I own two of 'em. What a bike...

Rode a little today...

Had a little decent weather today, rode the 1999 883 in today. Ill say it again, I love this bike. It runs nice and smooth (thanks to new Progressive fork springs) and looks perfectly classic. In my opinion the sharpest, most classic looking modern Sportster they made. Im still working on the '72, but its gonna be my Evo I take on a long trip this spring.  photo IMG_7094 1_zpshps9sty7.jpeg

Apparently, the motor in the '72 "project" I just got appears to be a 4 5/8 stroker! Some guys on my XL forum noticed some plates underneath the cylinders, and lo and behold, the flywheel markings indicate 4 5/8 stroker flywheels. Pistons are .40 over which is a bit risky for '72 cylinders and appear stock style, hence the plates. When I get time, Ill get a battery, wire it up (correctly) and try and run it. This may be a good buy after all(:  photo 40C9AA17-3618-4D63-9BAF-232290FDA35C_zpsrppeesh6.jpg  photo 201DF2B4-2792-4D01-A572-6BB41EE24AEF_zpsewbfr7z6.jpg  photo 789798FF-CD29-4E3A-941F-AF81F704CCAC_zpsf9hekgmp.jpg
