1979 Ironhead XLHE Harley Sportster

Greg from Poughkeepsie, New York, United States, made available these pics of his Custom 1979 Sportster which he classifies as a Harley Davidson Sportster XLHE, and which has a rebuilt 1100cc Harley Ironhead Engine. This Harley motorcycle has been his labour of love over the last 8 years.
