1965 Harley-Davidson Sportster 883 XLCH Ironhead Hardtail Garaged Antique *Use Make an Offer* *Use Make an Offer* This modified bike is 50 years old. It has been kept garaged. Runs-- Loud as Thunder!!! Gremlin Bell. Saddlebags. Older Half-Helmet. WE CAN ARRANGE SHIPPING AT YOUR COST THROUGH uSHIP. Had a tune-up this year. Has periodic light random oil leakage(more like droplets). and same brake fluid light occasional leak which is on my maintenance "to-do" list. There are a small number of chrome "rock bruises" you can see in the pictures. I have decided to sell primarily because the bike is kickstart and I am older than the bike! She needs to be driven. Garage life is bad for her. we all know sitting ages us! This bike wants to be seen! Like the big 1200. the Sportster retains a hand spark control in combination with an automatic advance. This may sound like old hat. but it's a darned good thing to have when starting up. An engine of this size has a tremendous kick to it. and a backfire just as you are midway in the kick could break your leg. By turning the spark control to full retard it is almost impossible to be kicked by this machine. Once you have it running you turn the control to full advance and the automatic takes care of the rest. The Sportster is not designed for just anybody. least of all the young fellow just graduating from a Honda 50. But for a man with two or three years of riding experience under his belt. who wants a powerful machine that is still sporty. Its torque and speed in highway situations are positively exhilarating. Unless you aim to set a new land speed record. it is the fastest thing you could possibly want. ** Will consider exchange for: Ford Pinto V8. nbsp; Chevy Vega V8. nbsp; Ford Mustang. nbsp; or Chevy S10 Pickup
