Default 74 Ironhead Sportster Project

This is my 74 Ironhead project started this year and my first bike restoration. I stumbled on to this forum and found alot of very interesting and useful information. Hopefully I can offer some of my own information as I undergo this project. Pictures will follow as soon as I figure out how to upload them.





Finally figured it out the pic upload. Here are the before pictures. I'll be adding to this as I progress in th ebuild

Welcome and congrats, I too have a '74 project in the works,you have come to the right place.
Easiest way to post pics is using a photobucket account, it's free and easy.

Here's one from my account of my '74.
