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.
