Where did you get your from? buchananspokes.net? What rim is it beside it being Excel rim? Was it 40 holes rim? Check out Page 3 of my sportster building thread and see what I got for free from my H-D dealer.

Takasakgo excel rim. I had woody's do the work and they superlaced it. I had double butted over sized SS spokes. I love woody's wheel works they have done all my work with out any issues. Very dependable, very strong.

Hi,
Just read through your thread (took some time), I'm thinking of doing a similar conversion to an 883 over here in the UK. Just got to finish a full rebuild of a DR800 Suzuki BIG ( Marlboro Replica).

Your bike is a credit to you, very, very, good work.

Ps, we can do the Arctic circle as well, at the top of Norway (it's on my list).

sounds like fun the arctic and beyond is good riding in my opinion


I have started a rebuild thread and it is linked in my sig line. I am still unsure of what direction I'm going to end up with. I had a friend send me some pics of my last off-road trip on the sporty and thought it was fitting for the end of this bike build.

Very nice work! What's the latest on the bike?

This build is being featured in the BikeBuilds.net directory here: johnwesley's Harley-Davidson XL1200S

We're currently displaying only a reduced-size photo (similar to what you'd find in Google Images). *We'd like to ask for your permission to publish the original full-size image with your build listing.

If anyone would like to have a build of their own listed, just send me a message with a link to the build thread and we'll take care of the rest.

Ken
