2004 Harley Davidson Sportster 883 Custom

Harley Davidson Sportster 883 Custom

The bold new Sportster 883 Custom offers fresh, swept-back styling. The rubber-mounted engine and extra-low seat (668 mm) make this a bike you can ride all day. The new fuel tank holds 17 litres yet retains the "peanut" profile of the traditional 12.5 litre Sportster tank. Pull-back handlebars as well as a new swept-back riser, move the grips 38 mm further back, while new foot controls are also 38 mm back, compared to the 2003 model.

  • Rubber-mounted XL Evolution 883 engine
  • Lighter 883 clutch springs reduce lever effort by 25 percent
  • Silver powder-coated engine and covers
  • Chrome pull-back handlebar riser
