Default Sportster book

Not exactly sure where to put this so I put it here.

I'm thinking of buying this book on the SPORTSTER & its 60yr history.

I have that one, LOTS of interesting photos and historical info...but FWIW very poorly written and so far as I can tell was not reviewed in any way by an editor before publication. All that being said as a Sportster fiend still enjoyed it ;-)

Get a used copy, I bought one (you can't tell it was used) for $7.60 USD including shipping. You'll still be disappointed but you'll feel a little less like you were robbed.
