    I think she'll appreciate it more doing all the work herself. I think it will also motivate her to ride more since she has so much more invested in it. Good work both of you.

    Im digging the transformation of the bike... again! Hahaha! Keep the videos coming! Yall are a cool couple! Btw i have some chips ive been meaning to send you from my trip to Japan early this year! And i do need to come to one of your rides! My 48 now has a bigger tank so it would be better to ride as a group

    @Bike N' Bird
    If you use the mini apes that are on the 2018 1200 iron , ur gonna need longer cables, chump bars are good but there not knurled!, and break line will be a little tight

  • Lianny Pangelinan

    could look into Burley slammer kit. lower fork springs and rear slammer shocks. cool to get the bike fit miss bird.

  • Tim Meyer
    Tim Meyer 11 months ago

    If you still have your take off bars from your street bob you could try those , always good to reuse and the price is right

  • Trav Gebhardt
    Trav Gebhardt 11 months ago

    My moms first bike was a 883. She dropped it in the garage for this same reason. They need to make it even lower for short girls. My wife only rides with me because she's 4'9 and can't really touch.

  • Michael Doucette
    Michael Doucette 11 months ago

    Are there lowering kits for Sportsters? I've seen them for Street Glides and Road Glides that can lower up to a couple of inches.

  • Al Crabby
    Al Crabby 11 months ago

    An inexpensive fix that I've seen before is a lowering kit for the rear that kicks out the shocks so they are more horizontal although I hear the ride does suffer a bit it may be worth a go. I think she will find that better fitting bars will make a huge difference also as she will have much better control so the apes the dude mentioned will be good.

    I recommend biltwell chumps. $99, 8 inch rise, you can use the stock cables and brake lines no problem I have them on my Xl1200R and theyre great

    Great job wrenching! Hint if your brute strength isn’t around, a breaker bar, another wrench or a pipe is a good replacement. (But not nearly as good looking or cuddly, so definitely go for that option when you can!)

  • cranky shaterro

    change the bars and get some tilted risers

    What maintenance platform are you using? looking to get one for my Street Glide?

  • TheBigpappa160

    You might already know this, but next time use longer ratchet or a breaker bar then ya'll won't struggle breaking torque on shock bolt!

  • Arizona Rider

    Might need to do something different with those bars . Looks like she is really reaching .

  • Spectre223
    Spectre223 11 months ago

    Nice job guys, great seeing her do the work herself, that'll definitely help give her a sense of ownership on the build. Not knowing mechanics is one of my biggest biking shortcomings too so she'll feel much better about herself as a new rider if she knows at least the basics. Look forward to upcoming vids

    Gunluver1 11 months ago

    switch to burly shocks, youre right lowering blocks suck. seat also sits high af. My stock solo on my 2010 48 sits lower and i find it more comfortable then the le pera. Doesnt look as nice in terms of material but your girl will sit lower and closer to the frame

      Duey_didit This is a real, actually helpful, suggestion. Part number and all. Well done.

  • Moto Maverick

    You may look into some z bars pulled back instead of up so she doesn't have so much lean on the front.

    Awesome for Miss Bird .
    Nice that she doing the work ,that's the only way she will learn how and what's involved and how things work .
    I can't wait to see more on Miss Bird's new bike (or I always say it's a new to me bike or what ever you have) LOL

    You can fit her in your pocket!!!
    I had the stock seat on my Sporty for about 4 to 5 months and it was painful! I recommend a Mustang seat as a replacement. It feels comfy and looks great.

  • WolverineX’69
    WolverineX’69 11 months ago

    Pull back a higher handlebars 10 inches could be fine, if the seats make low difference keep the la pera

  • WolverineX’69
    WolverineX’69 11 months ago

    If you want to lower a little the front of the bike loose the triple tree and slide up the forks not too much or it will hit there are lowering kit for the front but they are not cheap, get a lowering kit for the back that costs less than lower shocks although they are safer, and she should be good to go because she has short and big legs (no offense I don’t know how to explain it well in english ahahaahah) because if you put a even slicker seat it will be painful for the butt.

  • Mark Smith
    Mark Smith 11 months ago

    Open end wrench works wonders for more torque on the end of that socket. So cute...

    • Mark Smith
      Mark Smith 11 months ago

      Don thanks, I had a brain fart, you are right, open end goes in hole when using other than socket wrench to extend it. Need to be careful either way. Out in the field where one may not want extra weight, every tool for the job, knowing little tricks is helpful.

    • Don
      Don 11 months ago +1

      Mark Smith Maybe box end. Open end can be a recipe for busted knuckles on a very tight bolt.

  • SkidPig
    SkidPig 11 months ago

    Just get some bigger boots Miss Bird 🤙

  • Misfits Viper
    Misfits Viper 11 months ago +2

    Why didn’t you just put lowering blocks on. Could have kept the better shocks
    Doesn’t matter I see you don’t want to use them. Maybe try some burly 10.5 shocks

  • Chip Branson

    I put 8" z bars on my iron the only cable I had to change was brake line.

  • erikdravn
    erikdravn 11 months ago +1

    I'm going to follow this build very carefully. I have a 2016 Iron 883. I am also a "short stack" at 5'5". I can almost flat foot my bike, but not quite. I would be a hell of a lot more comfortable riding if I could. Also, what is that seat she settled on in the end? It looks very nice and comfortable! I NEED THAT SEAT! I have the stock seat and a 2 up that I don't much like. I also need new bars but am afraid I'll need new lines (brake, throttle, clutch) if I change them. Ugh!

    • erikdravn
      erikdravn 11 months ago +1

      I was considering the Slammer kit as well. Seems like a good option. I'm not far from you,. my inseam is only 28". That's my biggest problem (pun not intended hehe). I'm not "real" short, low average actually. But my inseam is VERY short, even for my height. There are other Harley models with a lower seat height. However, those don't help because the engine and frame are wider, making it impossible for people like us to ride. Oh the struggles of first world people! lol

    • Dave Beals
      Dave Beals 11 months ago

      I wish I were a tall person like yourself; I'm 5' even. Still haven't pulled the trigger on a Sporty yet; but plan on the Burley Slammer kit front/back. Can't even consider a bigger bike due to a 26" inseam and forward controls.

  • Rene Fierro
    Rene Fierro 11 months ago

    Try some biltwell chumps with small risers. From the looks of what she’s saying would be comfortable for her, they might fit the bill. Maybe something an inch or two shorter but similarly shaped could work even better.
    But ten inch mini apes might be too tall I think.

  • Jarred Ridley
    Jarred Ridley 11 months ago

    Miss Bird not just a pretty face! But we all knew that already.
    My missus is also short, and I'm trying to get her into bikes. Currently, she's only comfortable on a Grom, which is a start I guess.
