Default Hi from Washington state

Hi everyone, I am a longtime Sportster owner and a first-time Ironhead owner. My winter project is a 1973 XLH1000 that I picked up on Craigslist recently. I love vintage motorcycles of all sorts and had a sort of weekend internship with a retired master mechanic and fabricator that lasted 9 years, until he passed away.

The other Sportsters I have owned are:

1998 XLH883/1200. Bought in Dubai and ridden in the Emirates for several months before going back to the States.
1989 XLH883. Bought for the frame. First Sportster I took apart.
1998 XL1200S. This is the Sportster I wanted all along. Wish I hadn't let it go. Also had an identical parts bike.

Location: Pullman, Washington.
