After the last post on Sportster add ons, I thought I would check the Storz page to see what Steve was doing. He has a couple of photos of his new show bike, a 2010 XR1200 with all of his goodies mounted and it looks pretty good to me. According to the site,
It features a Storz/Ceriani Inverted fork, YSS piggyback shocks, wire spoke wheels with alloy rims and billet hubs, chain drive conversion kit, solo seat tail section, Saddlemen seat pad, dirt track style 2:2 high pipes, 330mm front floating brake discs, billet foot controls and more.
I’d be willing to bet the bike handles like a track based bike should and it is a nice step up from the stocker in appearance. Of course, Steve’s parts and pieces are not cheap, quality never is, but if you’re so inclined, you can add things a little bit at a time. Not to mention, you can pick up a used XR1200 for a pretty sizable discount from new, these days, so the overall investment is less than it would have been not long ago.
If you think the bike look good, scoot on over to the Storz Performance site and check it out, and Storz has all the pieces to transform your standard Sportster into a street tracker, too, either way, it another example of the Sportster moving into areas the Motor Company doesn’t want to go, and I’m sure that suits Steve just fine.
