1972 Harley XLH Ironhead Sportster
Jon from Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States of America, made available these photographs of his beautiful 1972 Harley XLH Ironhead Sportster that he built up from parts in three months time.
Jon: "1972 1000cc Sportster bought on CraigsList for $1500 as a basket case. The bike was taken completely apart, every piece!! Took me about 3 months of continuous late nights to restore this bike to where it is now. Everything was restored or replaced that was defective or questionable."
Jon: "1000cc Ironhead .30 over top end, 4 speed (right hand) shift, 1984 narrow front end with disk brakes and 21" wheel, Mallory Electronic Ignition, customized fenders(originals modified), custom seat, misc after market parts. I went very low budget, simple/sleek and use as many parts that I got with the bike. I did all the work myself, even the semi flat paint! Fun, small, noisy, as it should be!!!"
