This bike is in great condition for its age you can see that from the photos. It looks great in the flesh with its matt blue paint with its GT stripe. A great start for a Bobber,Chopper,Resto or just leave it as it is and ride it.

It runs like a clock, starts first go nearly every time and does everything absolutely right. Its no speed machine but it's not slow either. The XLH is meant to be electric start but the starter motor has been removed by previous owner so it is kick only now. Starter motors are easy to get if you want to out on back on it at some stage.

It rides great and handles like an old Sportster. The forks are 2" over I think but I will supply the original tubes if you want to put it back to stock as well as a pair of shockers to get it up to a legal height these will be supplied with the bike at sale as part of the deal.

There are small scratches here and there on the bike consistent with its age,but the paint job is almost brand new. Please Don't expect a new or restored bike because it's not! It's an old Harley it leaks a little bit of oil (might need a primary gasket)There is bits of surface rust here and there on the bike and on the spokes (not too bad) have a good look at the photos as they form part of the description.

The tank is undented recently painted and original HD it looks great, the seat doesn't fit that well and may need changing or modifying .You can see in the photos it doesn't fit that great. The tyres are worn and I dont think they will pass a roadworthy.

You can see the tyres are worn in the photos don't ask me what it needs for a roadworthy as I wouldn't know as all those mechanics look for different things. It will need a bit of fixing and fiddling with to get it up to 100%

Here are some details:

Single Disc front end, I think the caliper is off a Honda Goldwing.The forks are the later Sportster 35mm type set up as a stock narrow glide. The front brake works ok but could be better.

Frame is stock and not raked etc.

Bendix Carb all jetted up correctly. S&S type air cleaner set up.
