Cool pics. Thanks for posting. Small but nice selection of Ironheads, betwwn the Boattail, Cafe and the Bicentennial edition. Don' t see many of the latter with the original paint work. I know a lot of guys today don't like them, but bakc in the day they were considered the coolest thing going.

the bicantennial? thats good to know, i was wondering what it was. id never seen one i guess. it is an original bike. see i didnt know it was a bicentennial. the decals on the tank threw me off. does that bike appear to be accurate?

bicentennial model was 1976,celebrating the 200 year anniversary the u.s.a. i,thought said 1976,somewhere in the tank art,but i,cant see it in either pic.i,remember it well though i,graduated from high school that year.
