Nice - reminds me of my friend Co's old Daytona Beach Fire Dept bike.

And my weak attempt to make an 09 look old.

This is my favorite Harley that I have ever owned. It is a 1969 XLCH. The 1958-1969 XLCH used a magneto ignition, was kickstart only, and had NO battery. Since it has no battery, starter, electrical nonsense, or any other extras its pretty light. For an old bike it goes really well on un-kept dirt roads too. It will easily cruise at highway speed and likes to play in the dirt too!





I'm the second owner of the bike and it is 99% original. The gas tank and fenders were re-painted once and the mufflers are reproductions. since she is so nice, I'm currently working on turning another old XLCH into an enduro to really tear up the back roads!

Here is my other Harley, a 1978 FX1200 Superglide. It is also mostly original, I'm the second ownerof this bike too, and she only has 9,200 miles (she only had 7,000 miles on her when I got her last year). The FX models are also kickstart only, but came with a small battery and 'normal' charging system to run your lights and accessories. The tail light, exhaust, and tank bades are all that have been changed.

God damn it! I swore I'm not ever gonna buy another harley, especially since I still have one very seldom ridden softail in my garage... Then I realized that I'm starting to get bored thinking what touratech farkle I'm next gonna add to gs or s and I need something to do during the winter. Next tought was I really don't know sh*t of any other brands than harley and having owned 3 sportsters before I kind of know them... Well, for one week I tried to suppress the urge without success, then I told the wife that I think I need something to keep myself occupied (you know, in the lines "idle hands are devils tools")... Next week I told her I might need to get a "project motorcycle" to mess with during the winter. Week after that she had accepted the idea and next week, after checking some bikes I brought home almost stock 1997 hugger...





It looked pretty good when I bought it, dirty but no major damage anywhere. After cleaning it seems to be even better than I expected, small scratches here and there but no oil leaks and runs pretty good... Though I'm still trying to search if there's some hidden problem to be found.

But anyway, looks like very good starting point for some "personalization". I think it's gonna see very soon PS fork springs, PS shocks, more comfortable handlebar and of course small peanut tank (that 3.3 gal tank is hideous). New seat is also a must, maybe something from corbin... Read gunfighter :) And the list continues but I need a beer now...

Sweet.
My first Harley was a 69 XLH. It was orange, too (originally). Bought it in 1976, sold it in 1997.
