For most riders, the Sportster has a pure seat-of-the-pants appeal. No doubt a function of all that internal combustion happening right beneath your seat. But that doesn't mean the eyes can't join the fun, which is why we build the 883 Custom. A chrome bullet headlight leads the way, followed by a flat handlebar on pullback risers. A 4.5-gallon fuel tank adds some meat to the clean custom profile. You get a powder-coat treatment on the engine, and forward controls for an easy-going riding posture. A new Suede Blue Pearl paint job can be yours to add a '60s vintage muscle look. And up top, a two-up seat. Anything that looks this good is going to attract company.
