1974 XLCH 1000 Sportster
Home Up


Bought from the previous owner in 1976 after an unfortunate accident in which he lost his left leg from the knee down (cager side-swiped him), this kick-only sportie is what I've been riding up until the Fat Bob was done.  A hell of a fun bike to ride, but not too comfortable for the passenger (my wife barely tolerated Main Street in Daytona).  Then again... comfort for the passenger isn't exactly why I love this little screamer.:
