Description

I'm selling a 1968 XLCH. I was planning on restoring it but I have gone in another direction. The bike starts easy. seems to shift fine and does not appear to burn oil. The cases do not appear to be repaired anywhere and I have a clean Illinois Title in my name. The belly numbers match. 768 684X. The VIN is 68 XLCH 10XXX. The VIN Boss looks good and the belly numbers are appropriate for a VIN number like this. Here is what I think is original 68 CH on the bike and in good shape. The frame appears to be straight and uncut with a C8 frame date code. The casting dates on the cylinders are L 16-7 & L 2-7. I don't see any broken fins. The top and bottom trees are correct for a 68 and the sliders are the 68-69 only ones. The oil tank is correct but chromed. The shocks are correct but chromed. It has the correct generator. It has a Harley Magneto and a nice looking chrome primary cover. What is not original are the front and rear wheels. the rear fender. the seat. the handle bars. headlight. taillight. license plate bracket. Mikuni carburetor. throttle. shifter and the chain guard. I am sure there are other unoriginal parts but these are the ones most noticeable. It has the gas tank with the vent for the Tillotson carb but the vent has been modified. I have many of these parts needed to bring it back to stock but that would be a separate deal. if you are interested we can discuss a price for them. This sale is for the bike only. The sale may end at anytime since I have it listed also on Craig's' List and for sale locally. Call me if you have any questions. 1-815-423-5709. Jerry
