Wow! Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone! I'll be lurking around looking for info on starting the bike for the first time. I have no idea of the condition, seller claims magneto is bad. I'm not going to risk my knee on this "Milwaukee Crippler" until the starter gears and magneto are fully inspected and brought up to date. XLCH means it's 9:1 compression.

Funny how what turned out to be often considered a "girl's bike," the Sportster was once the meanest tempered he-man Harley ever.

Oh yeah, shoutout to Hayward!
