Hi all, posted an introduction thread on the main forum but as I have a gorgeous '74 XLH and will be spending most of my time talking all that is Ironheaded I'll introduce myself here as well.
The names Keeno from Poole, way down south in the UK. I'm a Royal marine Commando have been for 25 years and STILL love the job. Been riding Harley's since 1990 but this is the first Ironhead, love it! It's a black 74 dry stored for 20 years before I came across it, lots of cool period features as well. Great forum...Cheers all...Keeno.

Welcome Keeno;

I love all Ironheads, The 1974 is a great year... plus you can still shift "limey" style...
