We spend lots of time talking about electrics this week. Mostly because that's where the interesting stuff is happening rightÂ now. But don't despair! I'm sure we'll have lots of good old fashioned gas burnin' bikes to talk about next week.
We also spend some time on a tiny little scooter, yet another Triumph rumor and lots of email.
Oh, do you remember Colorforms
? Those sticky plastic things in the shape of a pair of shoes or a shirt or something that you would stick on other sticky plastic things in the shape of a person or maybe a tree? Harley Davidson has given us online Colorforms! You can stick a bunch of accessories and stuff on a Sportster to see what it looks like. The difference is that you can peel your H-D creation off of the refrigerator door and bring it in to the real world if your wallet is fat enough.
This is the Sportster I would build from the available options. Probably not a big surprise. It's basically a 48 with luggage and a real fuel tank.
