There are countless threads in the Forum FAQ section (a link to the main page is here: http://xlforum.net/forums/index.php ) on how to do this. Here's two of them that might help you out:Pick whatever works for you.

Use the "Test Area" to practice.

..... and do NOT use Photobucket

Default Sportster Lot pic's

Yay me! First pic is the '75. Second is the '79 and lift, before I got it running and did most of what needed to be done to it. Third is the '79, the '77 project (on lift), and hind end of the '75. 4th is the '79 almost complete. Rideable, but not road-ready.

Please feel free to pm me with any questions. I'll try and get a few pic's of the parts collection.

Default Need 1979 and later steering stem

I just need the stem, but will be happy with the lower tree if it’s still attached. I believe the later stems are longer than the pre-79 stems (someone please correct me if I’m wrong). A forum member generously gifted me a stem some time ago, and it was too short. I then made my own, but I’m not happy with it. I lost my original while moving this past summer. I plan to use the stem in a Ceriani lower clamp, with the correct spacer, so I don’t need the Sportster tree if it’s not attached. Can anyone help?

Default Actually need ‘81 stem

Okay, I was wrong about interchangeability. I need a 1981 stem. Has anyone got one collecting dust? I believe we’re talking about late ‘81, though I don’t know if that matters with stems and trees. The bike is a mixture of early and late ‘81 parts, and came from the factory that way.

Hoping to buy a branch air cleaner (or any air cleaner, for that matter) for my mikuni vm38, if you've got something I may be interested in, please let me know!

I'm looking for a chrome left handlebar switch housing. Front half is all I need. Condition of switches, buttons, etc. not important.
