'08 XL1200N Harley Davidson Nightster Short Shots
Nightster with a few mods. 'Stage 1' with Vance and Hines black Short
Shots, Vance and Hines Fuelpak, and Screamin Eagle air cleaner. Black
Progressive 412 rear shocks. Mustang Vintage Solo seat. The
'stage 1' with the new pipes really woke the bike up. It *feels* like a
Harley now. The sound is incredible. It's quite a bit quicker too. The
combination of the 412's and seat have made an incredible improvement to
the ride. I think I can actually ride for more than an hour without
needing to stop and stretch now. I plan on getting a detachable rear rack
and roll bag for it still and maybe a new grips and pegs set, but I'm not
planning much more in the way of modifications. A few accent pieces here
and there is all I can foresee. No ape hangers or forward controls for me.
I like it like it is.

One Nightster In Vegas ( BOBBED )
These are the most recent pics. Bike comes out the shop this week. I will
attempt to get this video out within a week.
There is a Fuel Pack that wasn't mentioned. The ECM was placed right in
fron of the rear fender behind the oil tank. The seat rides great. After I
didn't realize I had to much tension on the spring. The guy who made that
bracket weighed a lot more than me so when I turned down the dial to my
weight...oooohhh baby.. I love that adjustable shock. The coil was placed
between the two rockerboxes with the ignition mounted underneath. Sorry
the vid suck as it shows no justice on the paint job. Paint is still flat,
but textured and with peal. It looks awsome in the sunlight. The original
black denim is on hold as I am hoping to do another paint job this summer.
there are no risers on the bars.
The Exhaust does sound real raw when
you roll off the throttle, that's what you get when you remove the baffles
on vance and hines short shots.
the struts are 10" eye to eye
Great pics by clicking on the link below. It may answer several questions.
Here are some coil, speedo, seat, and headlight mounting pics that may help
some, along with other photos. Oh yeah and I noticed on ebay there's a guy
selling real good solid struts for about $39 and 10" long made out of cold
forged solid steel or something. Search "Sportster Struts"
