Last year I sold my FZ6R as I wanted a cruiser. I really fell in love with the classic and simplistic look of the HD Nightster. Also, you cannot complain about a 1200cc in a Sportster frame. After much searching and a 500 mile round trip, I was hauling this back that needed love.



It is a 2007 Nightster that had 7300 miles on it, clean title, but needed some major TLC. I bought it from a bank that repossessed it. The owner let it sit in the rain, did not take care of the paint or chrome as the paint looked like ass and the chrome had rust all over it.






When I picked it up it needed to be jumped, the CEL was on for voltage issues, tires were dry rotted, suspension was shit. I quickly got to ordering stuff. I ordered a new battery, new voltage regulator, new plugs, new oil and filter, new mirrors, and wanted to get rid of the crappy looking exhaust. I ended up with a Magnaflow Legacy Series as I wanted something different than everyone else that goes V&H or HD. I also had the paint cleaned up and got a new gas cap.




To cure the suspension issues I ordered a Progressive 412 setup and new Michelin Commander II tires. While the suspension was getting changed and new tires thrown on I picked up a V&H FK3 and got a key tag.




The last mod I needed to go with the exhaust and tuner was intake. I loved the HD Screaming Eagle Intake with the Bobber Cover.
