The Sportster Harley should have built

covell sxr 3 thFor whatever reason Harley has tried several attempts of giving the Sporty an XR look. Never worked out right for most XR fans. Randy Covell from Rock Falls, IL pestered me for months for a XR-like kit for his 2003 Sportster. He pestered me because I am slow and I need pestering.

Randy used many of my parts to build his own special XR 883 and it looks very, very nice. Look his bike over in detail to get ideas for your build. A simple thing like a side number plate gives this bike a race look and acts as a leg shield from heat. Everybody give Randy a cheer because I know he is proud of his creation.

The best flat-track t-shirt ever!

XR750TshirtPerfect shirt for flat trackers to wear at motorcycle gatherings. It’s all about the first 1970 XR750--a proper right side view with all the basic specs in text box. The orange sleeves are so right for the two-color XR imprint design and set the shirt apart from all the other white ones in the world (or badassed black ones with skulls!).

xr750-shirt-photoThe design is orange and black on an Augusta 50% cotton/50% polyester shirt with orange raglan sleeves and orange collar. I'm stocking these in only Large and XL because, well, we're gettin' older aren't we? I'm making other sizes in small batches.
