87bigred's 1973 Sportster

This is my 1973 Harley Davidson ironhead Sportster. I have found that most bikes in this price range and era work best with some regular maintenance and are always great to ride. Recent new work includes .030 over S&S high compression pistons, new valves, valve guides, All Balls starter, Cycle Electric generator regulator, throttle and clutch cables. Other existing mods are Super Shorty carburetor, Andrews Cams, and straight open drag pipes. The stroker engine refresh has about 100 miles on it. It starts and runs strong.  Some of the chrome is faded or needs polishing and there is a crack in the rear fender on the inside near the motor.
