Default 1959 Sportster

City: Phoenix
State: AZ
Price: $4,500

Motivated to sell, tons invested and taking a huge hit.

Engine is done, best of everything inside. New trans, cracks fixed, nice polish etc.

Frame was a stocker modified by Smith Bros, then modified again. New neck with 1" neck cups, 38 and a 3" backbone stretch. Front end is a used but still very nice Paughco 2" over narrow springer. I just built the 10" risers for the drag bars. Tank is done. Rear fender is a Triumph that I widened 1" and built a tube structure to hold it steady. Rear wheel and brake are old and very nice chrome and the tire is a very nice Goodyear NOS.

There is a bit of old chrome bits for the engine, magneto needs attention but have the original single points distributor and an auto advance distro for it.

If you have ever built an early Ironhead, you know it's not cheap.
