Kirk - that is one AWESOME looking bike you have!
Two very different versions of the same bike. Stripped down scooter, and touring bike with custom trailer/ This 2004 Sportster has over 81,000 miles on it.
The stripped version
Here's mine...not any of the engine sizes you listed, but it's a Sportster (a worked-over one)...
Nice. I had a 1984 XLX1000, but mine didn't come with a tach.The bars were flat black, as were the mufflers and pipes.
What fairing is that?
The fairing is an old Tracy "Black Rain" model that I picked up on eBay. Mine also had the black bars and pipes when I bought it, but they were pretty nasty looking. I found some barely-used chrome XLH headers and paired them with some Dyno Power slip-ons. The stainless bars are from the Night Rod Special. The tach is a NOS kit for the XLX I came across a few years ago. I'm working (sort of...) on a 2-1 system for it now.
Beauty bike. I had an '84 XLX too. First new bike I ever owned. Looks like you've done some work to the front brake too.

Yes there is a bike in the picture. There are two of these around town, see em every now and then. I think it's cool.
Beautifully clean. Just the way i like them Great ride '83
Got mine yesterday! 2000 XL1200 Custom.
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.
the basic xlx quite possibly could be the coolest-looking motorcycle ever
based on big twin, not sportster you know......
]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
axis - are your sure? This link lists it as a sportie???
I was thinking sportie or would not have put up the pix. Sorry guys. Not a big deal either way - I still like it.
The black bike in your link is a Sportster. The orange pic you posted is a Big Twin with the same type bodywork.
fxr. sweet BT
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.
