Found these while cleaning out my computer. Ended up trading it for a '63 XLCH basket.

Here's some old photos I found of my dads '72 XLCH and his Triumph pre-unit chopper while looking through my old family photo albums. These are from the late 70s/early 80s except the Triumph picture, which was from 1968. I still remember the sound of those straight pipes rumbling up our street when I was a kid...

Well, I sold the Triumph. Then immediately bought a non-running '72 XLCH project. The Trump was a great running, reliable bike, but it just didn't do it for me. I guess I'm an Ironhead Sporty guy. I mean, shit, I've owned 5 of 'em! This is my second '72. I think they're my favorite year Sportster. This new bike needs a lot of work, i.e. wiring, carb rebuild, exhausts, tires, tuning etc but at least it has new pistons and rings. I'll post my progress as I go. Here's some shitty cellphone pix of her the day I bought her and brung her home. BTW, I'm looking for a bunch of stock parts for her, so drop me a line if anyone has some stuff and I'll send you a list.
