This newHarley-Davidson Sportster Hop-Up & Customizing Guidestarts with an American success story. The Sportster model has been in continuous production since 1957. Today, Sportsters are experiencing a re-birth of popularity among riders of both sexes and all ages.

The meat of the book starts with a chapter on planning. What is it you want to achieve? An old-school hardtail built from an Ironhead Sportster? The conversion of an Evo Sporty into a Cafe racer? Maybe you want to create a Tracker or XR style Sportster? No matter which theme you're looking to duplicate on your own project, author Todd Zallaps (a die-hard Sportster nut) explains the importance of planning, and some simple ways to ensure your plan comes to fruition.

The book presents two start-to-finish builds, one done on an Ironhead, and one on an Evo Sportster. Both give the reader an inside look at how experienced amateurs and professional shops go about a full-blown customizing project. From the initial disassembly to the mock up, paint and reassembly, all the steps are here.

Engine work and hop-ups are here as well, including the conversion of an 883 Evo to 1200cc displacement, and the installation of a Stage ll kit, complete with dyno run, on a late model fuel injected Sportster.
