Switched things up a bit: XL1200C

I'm really going to miss the playfulness of the Street's engine, but someone hit me up with a stupidly good deal on an '07 Sportster 1200 C. Since I'm looking to get into longer distance riding our here in Colorado, and it makes an awesome platform for Hooligan Class dirt tracking, I had to pull the trigger. Doesn't mean I won't stop loving the Street, I think it's a great bike for Harley moving forward, but had to trade it for the deal. Best to everyone and enjoy the ride!

Here she is. Need to lose the bags and that seat. Going with a Biltwell Mongoose with the rolled leather, probably going with mustache bars on a lower riser. Mid sets and a hand made sissy bar. Going to grab a flat-side peanut tank, strip it and blue it. Going to go for the stripped down minimalist look.

Actually, if anyone knows of anyone in the US who's got take-off 2004+ mid controls, I'd be interested in trading for the forward controls or buying them outright!
