74wolfpack's 1965 classic Sportster

This is registered and titled in Nevada as a 1965 Sportster XLCH Harley Davidson. The titled is noted "reconstruction" due the fact that I built it from two seperate basket cases and didn't have a titles from either. The frame code is E4. Fresh Linkert DC-12. Fresh Magneto refurb from Joe Hunt. Electrical/charging system works. Note the voltage regulator in the correct place. It has 0.050 over pistons. Dunlops, stainless spokes. New sheetmetal. Usual primary area repairs, presentable. New chains,clutch,etc. Ground up rebuild/restoration. Extra attention was paid to the jiffy stand mount, no problems there. New vintage buddy seat and passenger pegs added.  Speedo works. Shifts fine,not gearbox problems noted. About the only non-period correct things on it are the front fender and the chain guard, I just like the look of the 1967 style one. I rode it around the neighborhood yesterday since it finally stopped snowing around here. The fork legs are 2 inches under stock length. Heads,valves were just professionally redone, new valves and springs. I put in P series cams.
