Default Calling all "Long Frame" riders...

Let's see some photos of people out riding their "Long Frame" Ironheads! (1970-1985 Ironheads, also including 1967-69 XLH models).

I'll get the ball rolling - The Upper Bucks County XLH Rider's Association (UBCXLHRA) held our tri-monthly meeting today. Here are a few photos of my 1969 XLH and 16ouncePBR's 1968 XLH on the way to the vintage meet in Oley, PA today.

Meeting point:

Breakfast stop:

And when we arrived at Oley, we found another like-minded Long Frame rider, Papa Magneto, who wasn't embarrassed to park his 1968 XLH next to us:

Let's see some more photos of forum members RIDING their Long Frame bikes!

Lovely bikes MS, looking forward to following this thread!

Hope you don’t mind if I pollute it so early with an idiot question...

The chain guard on the blue one - how it extends past the sprocket? Is this a CH guard, or was that an option on any bike? I was told that the one on my CH, which has the wraparound type would be from an XLH. Actually I prefer it, and I’ve since found a pic of a surely brand new CH with the wraparound guard. I came to the conclusion (incorrectly, no doubt) that the CH had the kicked out guard for off-road purposes to avoid having it clog up with dirt.

It is the correct chain guard for 1967-69 XLH models. After 1969, I can't say what (if anything) it would be correct for, but to my knowledge chain guards were never something that was a factory option.

When you have a group of guys who don't have to go to work, what is going to happen? They ride their long-frame bikes to breakfast!

Two 1968 XLH's and a 1969 XLH at our local bacon 'n eggs place, fueling up for adventure.

Anyone else actually RIDING their long-frame bikes? Post photos!

That is the same looking factory chain guard as on my 71 XLCH.
I know it was available on the 70-71 xlch but not sure about other models/years.
