I built an oven from an old small freezer just right for wheels, but I can't get my controller figured out  >:(

If I had a big dedicated shop, I'd draw up a plan and have a sheetmetal shop bend me up a the metal for an oven that would accomodate things up to frame size with a rolling rack system for loading. And step up my blasting cabinet a bit too.

one of the awesome parts of sportsters is there is literally no end to the farkles you can buy. That new clock and lights is nice!

You aren't kidding... Yeah the speedo housing and LEDs are Roland Sands units... I couldn't get past 'em and had to have 'em... not cheap but groovy and mine are the only ones in that color so... win. I scored a barely used set of Roland Sands pre-load adjusters on ebay for less than half the price of new ones. Which is cool... Also a set of RSD foot pegs... It's unplanned but I'm evidently destined to have a ton of RSD parts on this bike as I'll likely have a Roland Sands scrambler exhaust. I just don't think I'll have the energy to build a set from scratch. My handlebar can't fit in my oven so I had to drop that off at the powder coater this morning. I don't need a flashy piece of chrome jumping out.

Nothing to really show off right now... I've sold off most of the major take-offs from the Sporty. Tins, Wheels+Tires and Exhaust all that is really left. Oh and a Stage 1 intake.

But I got a used rear spoke hub off eBay and got that thing powder coated and installed new bearings. (Factory bearing removal was most fussy....)  I was able to drop both hubs off at my wheel guy today, he already had my tires in... should have my hoop/spoke order from Buchanan any day. Got the new risers in also... not sure I like em any better than the others... might stick with the factory risers. Dropped the handlebar off at the PC shop and should have that.... fingers crossed I'll have the front end finished next week and can focus on the rear end.

Love seeing a Sporty being de-cruiserised.  Looking forward to seeing the progress!

Man I've got a 2000 Sportster Sport edition sitting in my garage waiting for a buyer.  Reading your thread and your plans is almost - almost - giving me second thoughts about pulling the ad!  Will be following your thread with much interest and enthusiasm - looks great so far

Thanks for the props guys.

I swung by the shop and my wheel guy John was busy lacing and truing up my rear wheel and getting ready to start on the front. It's good to have a true old school motor head that has done nothing but work on motorcycles for nearly 50 years. John's the best wheel guy in area for sure. These Excel rims are gonna look and perform awesome... I also have my chain conversion and rear shocks on the way. I went with 15" Burly Stiletto shocks. I have some more powder coating to do this weekend in anticipation of getting the front end done next week.

Nothing looks better than spoked wheels imo. Just plain sexy!

So I got some more powder coating done tonight while still waiting on some parts and my wheels to arrive.
