1966 XLCH Sportster / XLR Ironhead
Brian from Superior, Wisconsin, made these photographs of his 1966 Ironhead XLCH / XLR Sportster which probably is quite close to her original 1966 condition. Like every pre-1970 Harley Sportster, she was delivered with a 55 cubic-inch (883cc) Ironhead motor.
The Ironhead engine serial number indicates that this is a 1966 XLR. However, this Harley Davidson is registered as an XLCH. It is likely that she is a Sportster XLCH with an Ironhead XLR engine.
Typical for its time, this 1966 XLR Ironhead 883 engine has kick start only.
As you can see, this is a 1966 XLR.
