  8. I'm confused about the whole sportster thing, I thought they were small Harleys with a smaller 8xx cc engine and the other Harleys had a larger 1200 cc engine. But you call yours a sporty and it has 1200 in the name, Can a Sportster have the 1200 engine?
  9. Sportster a come with either 1200 or 883 cc

    Big twin Harley's since the early 80s have been 1340cc and above, currently about 1680cc with the 103ci
  10. cougs yes Sportys do have both versions 883 & 1200 i purchased mine new in 2003 its the 100th Anniversary model a 1200 XLH spoked wheel version most of the 883,s seem to run the alloy mag version rims IMO they look cheep.
  11. welcome aboard :)
  12. Oh, I had no idea regular Harley motors were even bigger than 1200 cc.
