Is a 1983 XLH 1000 an AMF bike? Someone said that it was and that I should sell it and get something else because it is only going to break down anyway becaues it is a AMF.

i could be and probably wrong, but i believe the amf years were 73-79?
at any rate, the were pretty good bikes for the time.amf introduced the japanese parts on a harley that we still pay for today.
showa forks
nippon denso instruments
most electrical (hitachi anyone?)
owned two amf sportsters and both died horrible deaths because of operator, not amf!!!!!!

ymmv


btw, mikuni carbs were the savior to tuning these bikes!!

That bike is post AMF.
In 1981, senior executives at Harley-Davidson purchase the company from AMF. Harley-Davidson once again becomes a privately owned company.

It has lasted 22 years, probably has a few more left. LOL

By this time, what was going to break, has already broken, and should be fixed. Just ride and enjoy.
