I'm leaving on a trip in a couple of hours to pick up my brand new (old but new to me) Ironhead sporty...It's been about a 3yr Hiatus with no bike due to health/financial reasons...I'ts also a basket so I will need a good forum...Just introducing myself...Max from WV ...

PS I plan to take lots of pics with this build so I will post them ...

I did a "from the ground up" restore on this one about 6 or 7 years ago and cried when it went down the road :-) ...I've had a Shovel and a twin cam since then and I've always missed the Ironhead sporty ... Theres something about the bloody knuckles and the breakdowns...pushing it home etc...etc.. that gives you a real bond with a bike... I didn't have that with the others but the one I built I just loved it...I hope to have that again with this new project...I'm sure I'll be frustrated at times but I can think back to this project and remember how it felt when I got it on the road....It was a blast

Welcome to the forum from sunny Italy! There's just nothing like an old Ironhead and there's nothing like bringing on back to life. Good luck on the build!
