1970 Harley Sportster XLCH Ironhead

Chris from Deerfield, Illinois, United States sent us these pictures of his 1970 Harley Sportster XLCH Ironhead in the different stages of development and modification over the years.

In April 2009 Chris wrote to us: "Bought this from my brother, after he bought a new 1999 Dyna. I could not allow him to let this baby just sit. So here she is, running hot like she should be. Has been through many transformations as you can see and settled for the blue on blue."

"Still working it with a newer paint scheme on its way."

On this page we show you the archive photos of Chris's Ironhead.
