3DogNate's '05 H-D Sportster Scrambler build
« on: Oct 08, 2017, 13:29:57 »
So I sold off my BMW R75 and I scored this really clean and good running 2005 Sportster for a really great price (below trade val) with a bunch of extra seats, bags and stuff. After I sell off the stuff I'm not going to use this donor will be downright cheap. Now... I'm a fan of the Sportster as a platform... I've built hard tails and cafe bikes so those are no bueno. I'm going to make this bad boy into a sweet scramber. 

This is what I brought home

I scored a good front hub off ebay and cleaned it up and powdered it in the Charcoal PC and installed new bearings. This will be the minor color in my two color powder coat theme... (along with some stock black that I don't plan on changing out. Rear hub should be here Tuesday, I'll get it rebuilt and  call up Buchannan and order my hoops and spokes and get the wheels off to my lacing guy so I can get the wheels done. I've had to add a new chock to my lift to accomodate the sporty, i've gotten along with other bikes with center stands up to now... the Harley is a little harder to deal with on the lift. the new chock does a great job though.

I started the breakdown today... gonna try to get the front end broken down and rebuilt this week... lot of powder coating to do. Cables are in good shape, they'll need to be shortened though

Too much of everything is just enough.

I broke down the forks last night. I'll blast and powder coat the sliders tonight and get those rebuilt. I stopped by my wheel guy's shop and ordered the Excel hoops and spokes. I decided to go with Metzler Tourance tires for a bad ass looking, good all around tire with a preference for the road. Should have those built in the next week or so... he's crazy fast. I gotta get my hubs to him in the next couple of days.
