Mike Dean Sportster
Long time Florida rider Mike Dean called us and said he had a Sportster project in mind and asked us to provide some parts and technical assistance. Mike wanted to go with 18" wire wheels and a chain drive conversion kit for a classic look, but he wanted to retain the stock rear fender which meant he could not fit the 180mm width normally used with our flat track style conversion. Instead we furnished 18x3.50 polished Sun rims front and rear, using a Metzeler 140/70-18 rear and 130/70-18 front tire. He added a Storz/BUB exhaust system and a Storz Ceriani steering damper kit.
The result, pictured here, is an exceptionally clean '08 883 with a truly classic look. Well done Mike !
