Deluxe hardtail sportster kit

Pretty great kit so far. Went together fairly easily amd looks great. All tabs seem to be mounted correctly, and the sheet metal looks decent enough. Welds look great amd the instructions are pretty detailed as well. All in all its a pretty good value if you don't have time to gather these parts.

Sporty Hardtail

This kit is as good as it gets for quickly hardtailing an Evo Sporty. Keep it up TA!

Randy Rucker

Quality product do not be intimidated, fun project! Just do it I waited way too long to do this but I’ll tell you TA has a quality kit that makes this easy. If I can do it so can you.

Carlos Lopez
The best kit on the market

No other kit includes more (seat, oil bag, fender, sissy bar, battery hold-down, brake stay, axle adjuster bolts, tabs already welded on, holes tapped and ready, phew!) It's convenient and gets you there most of the way. Priced out piece-by-piece from other sources, this kit saves you money!
