1970 XLH Harley Boattail Sportster

Jim from Simsbury, Connecticut, USA, made available these photographs of this beautiful and very original 1970 XLH Harley Boattail Sportster.

Jim: "Vintage Harley Sportster 900 Touring Machine. This bike has Willie G Davidson's experimental fiberglass tail section. It also has genuine Harley bags, windshield, passing lamps, engine guard, blinkers of amber and red, 4 gallon HD touring tank for Sportsters. Very Rare tail section grab rail and a custom center stand and oil cooler."

"The bike had a professional paint job that you stare at for minutes in House of Color candy green, which is a close approximation of the original "Sparkling Green" from 1970."
