My 1980 XLH has 0 miles on it. It had 0 miles on it when I bought it and after 2 years of regular riding it still has 0 miles on it. I can prove it too since it doesn't have any gauges.

That is an honest-looking bike

Price is not bad for what it looks like. More experienced people on here can tell exactly how stock it is

all the covers on the motor and primary,sprocket cover etc. have been chrome plated.$$$expensive but probably hurts the resale value when it's an antique now.

Completely lacking in facts and detail about what is being sold.
Packed with conjecture and innuendo.

A mod like this would not be applied to a 900cc motor, they would need a big bore stroker under those heads to make them work.

I file this along with XR teenage fantasy (drunken campfire glory) stuff. (Kleenex and hand lotion included)
Here is another set, possibly a little more legit. far better priced.....

And another set
