    Sportster Forward Controls.

    I am contemplating I may go back to mid-controls - I'm not really sure if I am getting on with forwards; plus I am a bit short in the leg department (although not as bad as some it seems).

    Anyway, these are H&C ones; black powder coated and have only been on for a few hundred miles, if that. The brake pedal has been re-profiled to get over the issue of fouling the stock front header. I have also made an adjustable brake rod in polished aluminium as the the one that came with the kit is non-adjustable.

    I paid about £110 for them. The original box will be with them.

    A reasonable offer welcome or I will consider a swap for useful items to fit my bike.

    Send me a PM if interested.

    Forwards don't suit my short legs, mids are a good fit for me. More comfy on longer trips too.

    I will probably let them go if I get a sensible offer; but it seems like they aren't as sought after as originally thought.

    Hey buddy!

    Not quite sure how to PM as I’m new and working the forum from my phone where everything is tiny... but I am interested in your forward controls I have a Sportster 2009... will they fit?

    The forward controls that AL (Gettin'onabit) is selling fit all XL883 and XL1200 Sportster models from 2004 to 2013.
