2003 Harley Davidson 883 Sportster
You can hear a Harley-Davidson coming from a mile away. Some people
love that loud, low rumble, while other people think it's
obnoxious. Regardless, that "potato, potato, potato" sound is loved
by Harley riders. They'll even modify their bikes to accentuate
that growl. At stock, that sound coming from the exhaust emits
around 80 decibels, depending on the model. To put it in
perspective the average car is around 40 decibels at idle and only
produces 50 decibels at high speeds. When Harley riders remove
their mufflers, or put a straight pipe on, the noise increases to
100 decibels. Without hearing protection, that level of sound can
cause permanent hearing loss in only 15 minutes.
The low seat height and boulevard styling, with drag bars and
forward foot controls, give the XL Sportster 883 Custom a radical
profile. The unique chrome speedometer mounting on the drag bars,
the chromed, bullet headlight, and sleek, two-up seat add a little
street-racer style. The wheel treatment, 21-inch laced front and
solid 16-inch disc in the rear, adds to the custom styling.
Vivid Black with two tone silver striping on the tank, leather bags
upfront and in the passenger setback, and plenty of chrome make up
the structure of this very nice bike. A tall chrome riser and drag
style handlebar are noted as well as forward foot controls and low
profile chromed rear shocks. Only 13,190 original miles, and a
A silver powder coated engine with polished covers sits comfortably
within the framework and is sporting 883cc's. This is an overhead
valve V2 Evolution engine and it is in nicely preserved and
maintained condition. A 5-speed transmission can put power to the
rear wheel and provide fuel efficient cruising if you want.
The first owner purchased the bike then became pregnant, so the
bike sat for its first two years. Then our consigner swooped in,
and got much enjoyment out of riding this bike, and kept it well
maintained. Now up for someone else's thrills to come.
