30 year old 883sportster converted to 1200 (I wanted a chain drive) I wouldn't trade it for a new one straight up.

nothing like wind therapy with something that touches your soul.

I have been enjoying my '81 ironhead.

Find myself taking it over the fast '03 and my Dyna sits most of the time.

Damn bike keeps losing bolts. Previous Owner didn't use loctite....
