With the prices Harley has now I can see why people aren't buying them and looking elsewhere.

It's a real shame.
After my first 15 years of riding I bought my first Harley in 2006, a brand new 883 Sportster.
At that moment I fell in love with Harleys.
Now there's nothing on the showroom I like, and even if there was something I liked these current prices aren't even close to what I would pay.
Harley-Davidson has lost me as a customer.

If the Ironhead is no more, then why are there so many active threads about Ironheads? There will be lots of XL Sportsters around for a long time. It was (and still is) the best bike Hardley-Ableson made.

Here's the complete kit:



Two shocks, four "tophat" spacers, four other spacers, spanner, instructions, and grease for preload cam.
