Thanks, PC_Hater, that's what I hoped to hear. Seller sais it already has these mods: double 'brake piston', LED lights, 'Hypercharger Air Filter', new seat and relocated foot rests for more convenience.Yes! Buy it. Sportsters are fun.
It has the 5 speed gearbox, the 'modern' style alternator.
Better brake calipers are available or do the twin disc conversion if it bothers you.
Led Sled Customs even sell a kickstart kit!
1250cc kits are available as is a very nice 1450cc kit from Axtell.
Remove that stupid Kuryakyn air filter and get a K&N.
I have a very pretty 1200S Sportster.
$5.5K seems high for a 25 years old bike. They all seem to stop depreciating at that number though. 25 years old means carbs as well. I don't have a HD but I heard the 2004s and newer have better engine mounts so it won't shake you to death. I don't know when FI came about.
