Great looking Sporty. Tank seems quite wide... wider than a king sporty tank or is it a trick of the light?

Bit tricky building choppers in Vic... but can get them on club reg in some clubs. Frame mods will need engineering if you want to get it registered.

thanks for the tips Prof, hey I'm not 100% but I always thought it was just a king sporty tank! think it might be the extra light on the side of tank.

here's another picture from the top if that helps, cheers

Thanks for the welcome mate, it was a nice bike, one I regret selling!

G'day Slim, welcome to the forum. Last acquisition is nice.! Looks like an Exile cycle.
Loved the polished covers on the Sporty, too.

Thanks mate, my current one is a 2014 softail slim 103ci efi, real nice bike to ride!

Always been a fan of black barrels with polished primaries and rocker box's,once polished it's pretty easy to keep them looking good.

cheers
