Funny enough I've been thinking of a similar paint job where the black & orange are swapped!I love the Sportster script on the tank, reminds me of a green Ironhead( don't know the year) I saw in East London in 1973 near West Ham's football ground.

bet ya the bungee wraps clear around and that the oil tank rubbers are extinct.
but then who cares? it's another prime example of the dozens over priced iron heads that litter Craig's list......that never sell
