BAD ASS BAGGSTER

THE LITTLE BIG BIKE

Chris Lees Baggster project is off and running. The motorcycle you see here started life as an 883 Harley-Davidson Sportster. After installing a big bore kit to bring the motor up to 1200cc (74 cubic inches), and having a few components either chrome plated or subjected to the Diamond Heads treatment, Baggster bodywork was replaced the OEM stuff. Raked triple clamps, and a 23 inch front wheel/tire assembly replaced the stock front wheel and tire. The Sportster has now become a Baggster, with all the persona and storage space of a larger, heavier touring bike, while retaining the handling and light weight of the Sportster, with the caveat that the motorcycle actually handles more like a big bike than a Sportster. The larger front wheel and tire weigh slightly more than the stock equipment, and the added fork rake imparts some welcome directional stability at highway speeds. For more information about how to have your Sportster motorcycle made to look like a Baggster, contact Chris Lee at (605) 639 0154 tell’em Buck Lovell sent ya!
