Kicking around the idea of putting an 18” rear wheel back on the bike. Looking to buy, if not too outright expensive, or even trade my 16” wheel. If trading, if the 18” doesn’t have the drum/sprocket installed, I’ll have to pull mine to use on it. Would prefer a whole wheel assembly. Let me know what you have/need for it. Thanks!

Default 1972 XLH for sale

Am looking to offload my 72 XLH. Full resto completed in 2017. Got about 3000 miles on it since. Numbers match.

Price: somewhere around $7500
Location: Chelmsford MA, near New Hampshire border

During the restoration, the motor was disassembled and checked over by a local Sportster mechanic, then reassembled with all new bearings, +.020 pistons, Andrews cams, new valves and guides. The electrical system was rewired and ignition upgraded with Compu-Fire electronic ignition. Frame got a fresh coat of paint and alloy cases and wheels were polished to mirror shine. Transmission was blueprinted and upgraded with an Andrews close-ratio clutch gear. Original Bendix carb with internal throttle cable.

PM if interested.
