Harris Hugger-SP2

***SOLD***


Over all it's in good shape? Some cracking in the clear only, could be easily fixed with some light sanding and a re-spray. It's was this way when I got it. The PO said it happened when he did a track day and that the air pressure from the high speeds pushed it against the tire. I don't know how he had is mounted on his bike but I have not had any problem with this, even with speed runs down vacant back roads and a 190/55 rear hoop.

Open to offers, but please no lowball offers

Added more pictures.





The flash makes it look blue.

Here are some pictures from when I bought it about 2 years ago. As you can see it's about the same.

Better photos as promised




The black strip across the front is just some rubber tape (one sided adhesive) I used to help keep it in place and stop it from rubbing against the swing arm.

Thanks for looking
James

I know that spider-webbing looks gnarly, but you're right about it being an easy fix.
Someone can easily sand that to 600grit finish, then take it to an automotive painter for a professional application of clear coat.
My buddy at Sierra Collision would only charge about $50-100 for something like that, as long as it was prepped right. And it would look brand-spanking-new.

I've thought about doing that myself, but I've never painted before (excluding rattle cans) and I've heard that clear is the hardest thing to spray and I didn't want to make it look worse and I'm to cheap to pay someone else to do it.

If I still have once I get some free time, I may look into doing that myself. If it looks ready bad I can always wet sand it off.

To be honest with you guys, the cracking is hidden by the exhaust at most viewing angles and the tail and exhaust almost always casts a shadow over it and they are not as noticeable.

I hear ya, dust is the enemy. Causes fisheyes, and that can be a lot of work to colorsand out. That's why I recommended a pro with a paint booth.

What gearing was it ran with? Think a 42T sprocket will fit?

I ran it with the 15/41 and OEM length chain and had no issues.

I'm not sure how much a 42 will move the tire forward.



Anybody with experience on this?
