Yeah, but I'd end up throwing a couple more grand on it to get a seat and pipes like what comes stock on the Street 750.

Not a bad option, it's good for people who might think the Street 500 and Street 750 will be too mainstream.
Side profile on this is much more attractive as well!

yea i like that the forks are more straight up vs the Street 500/750, I'm not the biggest fan of the raked out look...

shouldn't be too hard to alter the neck angle, One of my cousins is a deep sea welder with a background in motocross racing, I'm going to give him a call and see what he thinks about altering the neck angle. He should be able to fab it up for me no issue....

Let us know what he says, interest in hearing what some pro has to say.

yea I hear you, but theres really not much to it besides lopping off the headstock and welding it in at a new angle...
That's true, but he might even suggest going for a different bike, making a really good suggestion in the process. I'm new to harley, the street 500 or street 750 will be my first harley ever. So someone like myself would find that valuable as i'm still open to option. I'll even save up a bit more to get the ideal bike.

Keep us posted! :cool:

I'd imagine that would change the dynamics of the handling quite a bit.

Sometimes stock is best, I always stuck to entry-level mods and never went too crazy, after all they did build the bike from the factory to be as good as it can be for the price they're selling it at.

I love the Iron 883 & would buy one without a second thought - except that I cant legally ride one in this country.

It is a very popular model here for those on their unrestricted license.

Any of the Sportys is a good choice.
I like more rake. Yes the steering will be heavy at slow speeds with more rake. I had a 91 Sporty with an AME 14*, 10" over "chopper" kit once (total of 43* rake). The steering was heavy up to about 15 mph. It handled very well, but you couldn't turn nearly as sharp. The bike rode better too, since it had a longer wheelbase.
I would never go with that much rake again, but somewhere in the 36* range is what I like. My "C" Sporty is 30* or 30.5*, but I don't plan to change it any time soon.
