Default '73 Sporty finally done

Before I posted this thig up in the classifieds I thought I would show you guys my sporty I just finished.

It's a 1973 Harley Davidson XLCH 1000cc Sportster Chopper. I bought the bike approx. a year and half ago, from a fellow jj'er brought it home and tore it apart and this is what I came up with.

I had help from my friend Matt at Seret Hot Rods and Customs in Vallejo getting the rear hardtail of the frame dialed in and the fender struts built.

Good friend, fellow jj'er and World renowned bike builder Max Schaaf In Oakland, CA did the body work on the tank and fender and sprayed an amazing "Mind Blowing" paint job!!!

Hate to sell the bike but have other commitments. It truly runs amazing!!

Hope you guys dig it!!

Dirty
