been watching the forum for a few months as around this time last year I picked up a '89 sportster that had been converted from a 883 to a 1200. the engine was blue printed around 10 years ago and still seems powerful!:brows: just had a service £450 and blew the clutch, half way home after repair £470 the gearbox expired!:badmood: ! now been rebuilt and running ok for now.
meanwhile the youngest is 14 yrs old and we bought a Honda 550 -4 chop last year for him to learn to rebuild. , well a year on , and the chop was swapped for a ZZR600, this in turn recently got p/xed for a '79 1000 XLH.
just going thru the nightmare of wiring as colours have been changed and a few wires cut.:huh:
anyways, have a good time and as Arnie said...':woohoo: Ill be back'
Welcome to the board! Your 14 year old moves fast - and there's nothing like an XLH at a young age. Merry Christmas to you!
