VXDspud is an unknown quantity at this point
Default My 1978 Ironhead

Hi all this is my old girl from the uk owned her for ruffly about 14 years at the young age of 13 im now 27 and sadly shes needing some TLC strip and rebuild but saying that all rides and stops as should loud and proud turns heads all the time this year 2018 alot of people must expect an older gent to get off her behind the helmet and they seem very surprised a 27 year old owns her but understands my story

Anyway i could baffle on and on but here she is

So far ive changed the bars and renewed the fuel pipe plus polish her up (also been serviced every year for no reason but hey ho )

First 2 pictures are how shes been for all this time and then

next 2 pictures are how she was before front end removal for head bearings to get sorted but now going to strip fully down and rebuild with frame powdercoat and more so will update as i go harley will be kept mainly standard black frame black tinwear just a fresh new lick of paint

(yellow bike is my 1994 bandit 1200 just been stripped and rebuilt frame powdercoated new paint ect ect)

Nice Ironhead. But I think you're off by 1 year. That's a 1979.

Yup, swingarm and oil tank don't match a 78.

Could be an early 79, like car makers HD released the following year models in autumn. I remember seeing a new 79 for sale in November 78 in the UK. Show engine and frame numbers to be sure. Also unsold XLCR were converted to Sportster look a likes
