That’s actually my main issue. The tiny tank. I like my rides in the 300-500km range for a decent day. So a tiny tank that gets me <200 isn’t really ideal.

Can Sportsters be outfitted with a larger tank? Damn it....now I’m gonna go searching. Frak.
I've got a spare Caponord tank you can have for cheap. A 25 litre tank on a sportster would give pretty awesome range.

If I end up doing something stupid and finding a Sportster this summer I will def hit you up for that. What year is it good for? 25L will be plenty!

EDIT: This is the style that I seem to have a fondness for... 2002 Harley Davidson sportster 883,1200 | Street, Cruisers & Choppers | Peterborough | Kijiji

I love the 883 IRON. But that's way out of price range. Wait wtf...I just bought a bike. This is bad.

It's supposed to go on an aprilia, but necessity is the mother of invention. I was half kidding as it may be too much work (gas cap, fuel pump and custom mounting solution required) but it is definitely available if you want to give it a try.

Stock image below, mine is silver.

oh lawd eyegasm look at this, @Evoex

I like the black one I posted better, but for 10K, I can't complain about the red one. Someone will get a great bike for not a lot of money.

gotta luv the look of an orange sportster tank..classic

frequent fill ups will let you stretch the body; and give the girls a chance to chase you ..
Not sure if you’re mocking me or not lol.

Not sure what it is about that look, but something always pulled me to it.

As I understand it....

2004+ is when they have rubber mounted bushings for the motor?

Any Harley has mods for every sort of taste?

Orange XR1200 is even better than that, I think:

2009 XR 1200 Sportster | Street, Cruisers & Choppers | Peterborough | Kijiji

Sportster might not be a great bike, but it's got those classic lines. When kids draw a motorcycle, that's what they draw...
very nice tank.. shame about the rest
like its trying to be something it isn't with that SS hideous tail
the best part of a sportster is its simple, and looks like a bike should.
says me but I really don'tknow harleys
