Sturgis Sportster Part 3, Progressive 490 14" Shock Install

An update on the Sturgis Sportster...we slowly have parts trickling in for the bike. This is the part that always takes the longest if you can't just buy everything at once. Buy some parts, install them, save some money, buy more parts, repeat. That's the part where we are currently at with the build.

I decided to go with Progressive Shocks, 14" in the rear to even out the bike and give it that really tall look.

Check out the video here:


Here's the parts that were installed in this video:

Progressive Suspension 490 Sport Series Shocks 14" fits Harley '82-'94 FXR, '88-'20 XL Sportster

These shocks were an easy install but did require the need to be spaced out. The stock shocks had thicker mounts than these.
