Building the Lil Devil, Part Three

In this third installment of the Lil Devil, our El Diablo Run bike build, we have been gathering parts to hang on our 1999 Harley-Davidson Sportster and boy do we have a gang of them to bolt on.

This bike is being built in a “Sportster Variant” style that mashes up a stock Sporty with a dash of super motard, a pinch of street tracker, and a teaspoon of straight motocross.

In the last two issues of Hot Bike, we rebuilt the motor and installed a 1200ci kit from S&S, then dressed up the motor a bit by adding some shiny stuff and an intake as well as breathers from Boyle Custom Moto. Now we are ready to upgrade the suspension, lighting, handlebars, hand controls, tank, fender, and seat with a mix of moto and metal.
