1969 Harley XLCH Sportster

Life's a Bitch... Thank God There's Sportsters!

Dick from Biddeford, Maine, USA made available these photographs of his gorgeous 1969 Harley XLCH Sportster which - not at all surprisingly - has the 883cc Ironhead engine with kick start only.

Dick: "Here are a few photos of my Harley Sporty. I added a bit of chrome but have all of the cad plated components. The bike was stored in a shed for a number of years but all of the components were there. I have the Tillotson Carb, but now have a Bendix Carb on the bike for ease of starting. Yes the paint and tank emblems are original. I did paint the frame, swingarm and oil tank."
