The Sweet Tracker is nearing completion, especially now that most of the essential go-fast parts have been installed to get the bike riding ahead of the pack, but visually, the Sweet Tracker had a long way to go…until now.
Phil Little Racing’s SXR Dirt Track Conversion Kit for Sportsters was the reason I started this project in the first place. I think I received a press release four years ago, and I immediately knew that I would do my own street tracker conversion some day. I contacted Phil about a year ago and mentioned my interest in his product. Phil is a warm, friendly bike enthusiast and was eager to help me achieve the look I was going for with my stock 2000 XL883 Sportster Hugger. He has an array of parts available for achieving the street tracker look, but I was only interested in the SXR gas tank ($495), and the SXR tail section ($495), which includes LED taillamp and license plate frame. The body parts are available in orange, black, or white. Made from fiberglass to fit ’86-later Sportster models, the Phil Little Racing SXR Dirt Track Conversion Kit for Sportsters is an inexpensive way to drastically alter the look of a stock Sportster.
Phil started flat track racing in the ’70s and made a few fenders for friends, which spawned the start of his flat-track-inspired business venture, Omar’s Racing, which specialized in street tracker body kits for Yamaha XS650s. He sold Omar’s in 2008, and focused on his next venture after receiving tons of feedback from Harley Sportster owners asking him to make a kit for the entry-level Harley. Well, Phil obliged that request and, as they say, the rest is history.
Being that this was such an easy upgrade, I did the installation of the SXR kit in my home garage with my neighbor down the street, Leonard, to serve as a hand model.** HB**
