Looks like a lot of ground clearance too.
Did you convert that to front disk brake, or is that stock?
It's a 1960 XLCH I got 2.5 years ago with a stock harley 1975's disk brake.
One day I woul d like to find a complete front. Fork, fender and 1960's brake.

Last week I changed the colored air filter cover. Remove the old pipes path witch are useless now.

Nextly I will exchange the front light cover (the actual on the bike come from my 1993 XLH) perhaps this week I will finaly recieve an authentic chain gard witch will need lot of work indeed.
As I live in a city, I will exchange the 1965 muffler (on this picture) with a auwfull 1986 one.

A Galfer floating rear disc arrived. Something to swap out when I put a new rear tire on.

Ordered Drag Specialty tacho.

Haven't had tacho and thought it would be nice addition, just to know exactly the RPMs Nothing necessary, but good especially if litlle stop light racing is done .
