Just purchased my first Harley last Thursday. I'd like to know as much as I can about the Harley (1973 XLH) I purchased and will post pictures below. I can't tell what's been done to it but it looks longer than the normal XLH's that I look at. Any help figuring out what's been done to it from the pictures would be greatly appreciated!!!! Thanks a ton!
I did a little research on it. I want to turn it into a bobber. Do the front forks look original to you? How hard is it to convert the rear brake into a disk brake? I think I will remove the front brake entirely. It supposedly has a S&S stroker kit on it ...anyway for me to verifity that? It's really really loud though and I love the sound. Thanks a ton for the help!
cant tell for sure but it looks like it might have stroker plates under the jugs. Hard to tell from the pic. It's a hard tail so making it a bobber is easy from there. some welding and fab work is needed to mount a rear disc, but it isn't impossible.
Original frt forks you would be asking for trouble removing frt brake rear drum where marginal at best when new not something to rely on as only means of stopping.some finaggling may get a rear disc on there never know.remove timing plug and roll engine over and look for marks on crank that might tell you but I doubt its a stroker
