1991 883 Hugger

I bought this from Uncaged cycles in Longview, Washington. It’s a 1991 HD 883 Hugger California special according to the vin number. The previous owner help start Uncaged cycles (Harley Davidson dealership). His name was Mike I was told he had a seizure while at work he fell and hit his head and died at work. His wife needed money to help cover the bills. So everyone that works there had there picture taken with the Sportster while I went to the bank and withdrew the funds. Since his name is the same as mine. My wife and I decided to name the bike “Mike”. I was told that he liked eyeballs and I was asked if I knew who Von Dutch is and I kinda laughed and said are you serious..of course I do. They said he was Mike’s mentor. So I decided to paint the HD symbol on the tank into a eyeball in respect for “Mike and Von Dutch”. I haven’t had a chance to paint it yet but I will really soon. I also need to replace the choke cable. The motor is not stock I have no idea exactly what has been done but I figured that Mike was a HD mechanic so it doesn’t matter. I’m going to leave it alone, no upgrades for mike “the bike”…….my wife made a point for me too leave it alone “I also am a mechanic” I agreed. This machine is perfect just the way it is smooth plenty of power its a turn key bike. Mike C
