1984 Harley XLX Ironhead Sportster
Life's a Bitch... Thank God There's Sportsters!
Doug from Northeast Ohio, United States sent us these photographs of his awesome 1984 Harley XLX Ironhead Sportster.
Doug: "I bought this bike in 1992. When purchased I put on a bigger tank, a bob rear fender, a new Mustang seat, drag bars, and a new speedometer. I put in a new battery last season. When I put in the new speedometer the old one had about 10,600 miles on it. The new one has 6,124. So the mileage is approx. 16,700. I have the tank the bike came with and the original rear fender. The color of the bike looks black, but in the sun you can see the color black cherry / deep plum."
