I love anything to do with Harley Davidson and have two beautiful children and a beautiful partner. In my spare time i like building websites and love anything to do with the internet.


  1. harley didnt make a 883 iron head.. all iron heads are either 900 cc . 1000cc. 750cc flat tracker.. 1100 cc.. but no 883 iron head…

  2. Oh yes, have a stock Iron and a Fourty-Eight start at the same place and same time; Depending on the distance, the Iron would easily win for the sheer fact that the tank is bigger.
    The Fourty-Eight and its peanut tank will be stopping every 60 or so miles (depending on what you have added on) for gas.

  3. They are respectable quick at 4-5 seconds 0-60. Besides people buy them for cruising and kicking back….not everything is about speed, some people need to grow up.

  4. and thats why i put a nhrs 1250 kit on my 883. that and new air intake and pipes fun as hell. and plenty dang fast.

  5. Harley Davidson 1200cc's for $1500 – $1500 (north jersey, jersey shore,central jersey,south jersey)

  6. I've ridden both, owned a 1200 Custom for 4.5 years before getting my Fat Bob.  There's NO WAY I'd own an 883!  Might as well get a KLR 650 if you want to go that slow.  My advice is; if you want a Harley and are considering getting the 883 because you can't afford the 1200, WAIT!  Wait until you CAN afford the 1200 or better yet, a big bike.  You'll get spanked by everything on wheels with an engine if you get the 883.  It's a dog!  And face it, no one wants to be on a slow bike.  That's like having a really nice slow car, WHY???
