It's got some good lines on it. It would be fun to play with.

1980 XLH 1000, lots of chrome and shiny stuff. Seems legit.

https://philadelphia.craigslist.org/...282922790.html

Mileage: 5,138

Last spring I found this bike in the NJ garage of its longtime owner since 1984. The motor has since been tuned, dialed in and I've ridden it daily for the past year. Have video of it running that shows everything you need to know about the engine-- it is an absolute ripper.

Very near-stock vintage Harley, with chrome and all the extras from the Harley factory. The forks are 4" over, has an upgraded LED bulb in the original factory headlight. Electrical system easily supports heated gear in winter and fires the bike right up every time.

Likely one of the lowest mileage 1980 Harleys still out there, and it shows. Comes with the original factory owner's manual. Clean, matching VIN# title in my name. First come first serve. Text: 215#395#4346
