Trying to be D-Day, right?

Good for you!, I just broke up with my girlfriend for about the 50'th time. I could use a little Ironhead therapy myself, time to hit craigslist...

I'm sure you can get a good one for pretty cheap. Lots of fun to mess around with.

Couple in there, a nice stock '76 XLH for $3995 caught my eye. I like the 1200R/ Sportster Sport models too, probably a better bike but more coin. I'll have to see what crops up.

I just bought a set of side rails for the bagger from Chicago HD, saved $65 bucks off local price LOL. My bud showed up the other day on his new '07 Police Road King and I was noticing how nice it looked with the rails so I had to get some...

Not a fan of the recent Sportsters. Seats/subframe too low. Too much weight added to and already porky bike.
