    I inherited a 1968 XLCH which has been standing idle for almost 25 years. I am pretty sure the bike was running when put into storage. I would like to revive it but unsure how to go around.

    My 73 year old father in law is about to undertake this project. Any advice, tips, tricks, or previous experience and suggestions greatly appreciated. He's a very experienced HD chopper builder, but he doesn't read very well so he asked me to "ask the internet" for him ;)

    CityGlenwood SpringsStateCOPrice300I picked up this set of matching cases for my ironhead project that is being back burnered. Overall they are in pretty good shape with the two repairs show. One to a stripped tranny door hole and the other the rear motor mount. Both need a lil work before assembly.
