Default evil sporty is complete. its alive!

so after a month or so of touching up and spitshine im finally posting pics of the evil sporty. it started out as an 07 1200N rubbermount efi swingarm. i chopped it as much as i could and when it came down to the hardtail i just wasnt prepared to do it myself, so i took it to l.a. and spent a few weeks with one of my best bros michael at evil spirit where i helped him with the rest of the bike. the tail section was the easy part. the internal fuel pump on the efi bikes is really big and had to go, so we used an automotive fuel pump and pressure regulator with custom mounts. the donor tank was a monstrosity that we cut and inch and a half off the bottom, and 2 inches out of the middle and the bottom is a single piece tunnel we made from scrap. the beadroll was spur of the moment, no planning but it worked out great. the stock wiring harness was stripped and all the excess crap was pulled out, and the battery box was custom made by michael to accomodate the ecm, power commander, bank angle sensor and solenoid/pump for the air ride seat suspension. the pipes were made with scrap bends and those diffusers ended up adding an additional 10hp. stock wheels and brakes, pm hand controls, riser bars custom, exile internal throttle, custom seatpan, stitched and covered in my garage. paint by my wife, briza. the bike is fast as shit, it just goes. its hella fun to ride and im really proud of the work michael did for me and what ive learned along the way. im already looking forward to my next project. on to the pics:

I caught a glimpse of Evil Sporty this evening before dark. I saw it at a stoplight as I was driving the cage.

Looking good. The helmet interesting also.

That's one fuel injected sporty done right! Very cool. Love the tank. The entire bike is just "right". Great job!

This morning as I was riding to work..I was milling over in my head the whole "Evo's have no soul" thing that a lot of people stand by. (I have two evo's.) And I understand guys feeling that way when they're used to riding flatties, knucks, pans, shovels, ironheads, etc. where the maintenance is quite a bit more than on the Evo's. You get more acquainted with the machine and learn it inside and out..and as I thought about it, I realized I had that same feeling toward fuel injected bikes. I'd never own one..for the simple fact that I can't manually change jets, and all of the wiring and shit. I stopped by the dealer the other day to pick up some fork seals for my 88 FXR I had ordered..saw a 'nightster' (blacked out Sportster) there and the wiring harness on the damn thing was about 2 inches in diameter. With that said, I think i've found a fuel injected bike I wouldn't mind riding. You simplified it..and it turned out great. Great bike..keep the sticky side down.
