I think the pictures say it all really?
This is a truly immaculate and stunningly designed and crafted custom Harley-Davidson XL1200X Sportster.
Purchased new from Harleyworld in Chesterfield and then transformed into what you see now - I can honestly say that I have never had a single negative comment about this bike from anyone who has seen it.
To purchase a new "48" and customise like this would cost around £15. 00.
Customised Items include the following; ( All parts genuine H-D unless stated )
* Custom paint by " 8 Ball Custom " - Solid Black base. White Pinstriping colour matched to the seat piping and whitewall tyres. and Candy Red over real "Grind" that fades to silver. The wheels are finished in Two-Tone Red and Black.
* Chin-Spoiler - Painted by " 8 Ball "
* Stage 1 Engine tune.
* Kuryakyn Circular air-cleaner
* Gloss Black finished Cam-Covers
* Paul Yaffe custom Exhaust.
* Standard seat recovered in Black Leather with white piping.

If you are new into Harleys then you may think this bike expensive as you may say " I can get a brand new one for £9000 " - which is true.
But - and it is a big But! - you really need to then spend around £800 minimum to have a "stage 1" kit fitted to make the thing sound like a Harley and allow it to breath. if you dont do this your bike will also take a serious hit on price when it comes to sell as all Harley used values assume that they are stage 1 tuned and if not!!
If you have had a few harleys and have visited the Parts and Accesories departments a few times then you will know how those odd bits and bobs to customise can really add up. this together with £85/hour Labour rates can soon see thousands of pounds leaving your wallet.
So. if it appeals to you then please give me a call if you want any more info etc - if not the I hope you find the bike for you. Cheers.
