Performance Sportster – Triple clamps
The project has started – Harley-Davidson XL1200N ’08. The motorcycle has been acquired after an accident in the United States insurance auction. Imported to European Union, Lithuania.
The primarily damage was to the front – bent and broken forks, wheel, fender. Many various damages all around – fuel tank, lights, handlebars. Most importantly – bent frame.
The frame has been straightened by motorcycle chassis repair shop.

These forks are similar length as stock H-D forks – 740-745mm depending on the preload.
