I purchased a used 1996 H-D 883cc Sporster for $6,000.00 (USD) I then had the engine upgraded to 1200cc's and added a few other relatively inexpensive modifications (hi-flow air breather) for a total cost of less than $900.00 (USD), I then added a larger gas tank (previous 2.2 gal to 3.4 gal), and put metal Harley Davidson lettering on tank (no decals). For all relative purchases I now have a 1996 frame on a brand new engine. A used 1996 1200cc Sporster would have cost at least $9,000.00--so I saved alot of money and got a much faster and better running custom engine, and was able to add a few more custom modifications with all of the money I saved.My bike is much faster and sounds better than any new or used stock factory direct 1200cc Sporster. The bike looks great via the no decals work on the tank. If you have a new tank put on a Harley, always look at the metal designs and insignias that can be placed on your bike instead of the factory placed or suggested decals for your gas tank. It truly makes a difference in how your bike looks. So get a new or used 883 and upgrade it to a 1200cc bike for less than 1000.00 ($650 P--UK). Safe riding to all in the UK. MarkIndiana
