righteousjoe's 1968 XLCH Sportster

This is a 1968 900cc XLCH Sportster, correct year frame as well, a nice survivor. The engine has matching belly numbers. No welds on the cases anywhere. The cylinders are original as well and are date-coded correctly for the year. This bike was put away running a handful of years ago and with some minor tinkering would be ready to ride as is. The frame is not altered but does have some molding done around the joints. Its not raked, just a little Bondo to make things smooth. I stole the throttle off of it a while back but the cable is there and ready to go. Bike turns over perfect, shifts perfect, clutch works, magneto has spark. This is a really cool bike. This is not your typical junk Sportster, its a good one.
