    Up a dirt road in the middle of the Portuguese Alentejo. Beautiful.

    Clearly not one of those guys obsessed with originality!

    Respect if he/she has done the miles that made it look like this. Chain conversion, tubeless type spoked wheels, fork protectors, serrated pegs, it all says 'serious'?

    interesting... almost looks like an XL with an XR swingarm. The struts don't go up high like the XR instead of straight back.

    yes, I was thinking the same thing... side draft throttle body, no oil cooling lines for the heads, made me think at first it was a XL model

    that too. At first I thought maybe someone ditched the XR engine for some reason. I actually saw a build on here a while back where someone swapped everything over from an XR onto an XL frame and rear suspension. It made a pretty cool looking more contemporary take on a cruiser sportster version. Do you know the bike?

    That's one of the three sportsters that went across the Sahara desert
