This is a series of videos covering the installation of a Road 6 Customs Sportster hard tail conversion kit. This is a complete kit that includes everything you need to convert your 1982 to 2003 Harley Sportster to a rigid frame ride. The kit is 100 percent US made, the hard tail section is made of inch and a quarter D.O.M. tubing, it comes with a battery box, oil tank, axle and adjusters, everything needed to convert your stock Sportster to a custom bobber or chopper. There are two versions of this kit, the “Narrow Frame,” that will take 130/150 tires, and the “Wide Frame,” intended for a 200 rear tire. Both extend your wheelbase by about two inches, and you can run either a belt, or chain final drive. These kits are very well thought out, with pieces that cover the obvious signs that the frame has been modified. When you are finished installing this kit, you will have a safe, durable, and beautiful custom frame.
Editor’s Note: The Sportster in this series is the same bike featured in “April Knapp’s Chopped 1200 Sportster.”
And there you have it, a quality, made in the US hard tail conversion kit that is easy to install, giving you the perfect foundation for your next custom project.
