Thanks, guys. here are a few things I've done to it that I haven't already mentioned: Dual drilled front discs with EBC kevlar pads, replica XLCR front fender, SE fork brace, Progressive front springs, Honda GB500 gaitors, and an H4 headlight. The rear has 13-1/4" FXDX (Superglide Sport) shocks with progressive springs and adjustible rebound damping. The rear fender is a slightly bobbed and recontoured Evo piece with a lay-down plate holder, and the seat is a Mustang Fastback. Gearing is changed to a 23/49 combo, it has a Barnett clutch, and I've fitted a Lockhart oil cooler. I've ported the intake manifold, opened up and rejetted the carb, and put an Andrews high-flow accelerator pump on it. The air cleaner is a SE unit made for early Evos that I adapted to the Ironhead, finished off with a cover I modified. The coil is a SE unit and the plug wires are Taylors. I also added a second crankcase breather to let it rev a little more freely. Whew!...that's about all I can think of. The bike's a blast to ride and handles pretty well in the twisties.

sport

]I bought an 86 that was stock and tired looking. I put some sport into her along with a new look. 15 in. shocks, new fork springs with added pre-load, four piston front caliper for more sport. Spent some time and money changing her look too. Haven't ridden it on the street yet, don't actually like ridding it. Tried to attach photo with out luck. Operator error. Hey, I'm new! still can't

The black bike in your link is a Sportster. The orange pic you posted is a Big Twin with the same type bodywork.

Bluhduh Ironhead from basket

dammit...I can't get a real pix in here, just the link. I suck. At any rate, note the hydraulic clutch, dual plugs, alternator & oil cooler.

For an Ironhead, it's almost civilized. Just listed it in flea market.

Very nicely done XLX. Long ago I owned 3 Sporties, a '74 XLCH, '75 XLH and an '81 XLH. Back when life was alot simpler, they were some of the most fun bikes I ever owned.

WOW!
A Sportster with somewhat comfortable ergos. Who'da thunk?
Looks like a '58 or '59.
