thegooch22's 1982 springer Sportster

This bike is fresh off a new top end job and 10k service. The top end has new 0.020 over KB pistons and rings. The cylinders were machined to spec and the engine has fresh seals and gaskets. The chassis is updated with shorty Progressive rear shocks, a Paughco springer front end with a 21 inch single disc front wheel, and a chrome swing arm. The front and rear brakes have been updated with GMA calipers, with drilled rotors and braided brake lines. I upgraded the foot controls upgraded to chrome forward controls with a chrome rear master cylinder. I upgraded the hand controls to all-chrome Evo controls. All the sheet metal is of the aftermarket variety and is painted with a black pearl flake. The flakes are small and the paint looks great. The twin-cap peanut tank is clean and dent-free. The same goes for the pointed front fender and the long flare rear fender. I upgraded the seat to a Mustang studded seat and matching pillion pad.
