Here’s How I Turned My 2006 Harley-Davidson Sportster Into A Badass Scrambler

Whats better than saving up to buy a motorcycle? Saving up to build one. Alright, the word “build” might be a stretch here, but that’s exactly what I’ve done. I bought clean 2006 Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 you see in the video above and the photos below for about $3,400. I could have went newer and spent more, but I landed on that amount because I wanted a solid motorcycle that I could use as a canvas to do some simple, fun cosmetic work.

Fortunately, I did end up with a solid bike for that price. Nothing mechanical needed my attention, so I started the build by stripping off parts. The wide factory seat and long rear fender were the first to go. Once I built brackets for an old CB750 tank and shortened the front fender, I  welded a piece of flat bar to mount a custom seat and hooped the frame.
