1973 H-D XLCH 1,000cc | Brag Your Bike


1973 Harley Davidson Sporster, XLCH kick only. I found this bike near Buffalo, Missouri, it was running but not well. I loaded it up in the back of my 1983 Ford f250, hauled it home and almost immediately started to tear it apart.

Rebuilt the top end .020 over, installed the springer front end, built the zephyr style handlebars at work, hacked and welded together two sets of rusted drag pipes to create what you see here.

Mikuni carb and other misc small things that hold this bike together, as it’s ridden almost daily from Chesapeake to Springfield Missouri.
