Hey fellas.
I just got my first Harley. I've ridden Hondas and BMW'S. But this 62 sporty is my dream bike. I know nothing about Harleys. Honestly I'm nervous about the rebuild.
I'll post pics Sunday. Needs alotta love.,so I'll be picking brains here.
Some guys I've talked to think this bike is a terrible first Harley.
Thanks

welcome...
i'd not worry about it being a terrible first harley; they're all terrible at first :D

if you're mechanically inclined, they really are pretty simple machines. a few quirks, definitely not as... ahhh... refined as a honda or beemer... but addictive.

grab a factory service manual (not one of those clymer manuals... a real factory manual, they go for ~$50 on eBay or sometimes come up for sale here). it'll be your friend.
