Fresh pic of my '83 XLX, taken this past weekend.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.

This Sportster has lived at Logan Airport in Boston for years. It's behind a storefront window - a store that has nothing to do with motorcycles. Strange.
