Introduced in 1957, the Sportster range became hugely popular as the diminutive Harley – more nimble and sporty than the full-sized mega-touring machines. Obviously, many changes were made over the years, but in 1982 Harley-Davidson revised the Sportster frame to a far more modern construction, which then housed the new all-alloy Evolution engine from 1986.
The Sportster on offer, here, in inimitable black livery, was part of a California collection of American and European bikes. A barn-find when discovered, the bike was stored for the last 15 years, having covered only 4,200 miles from new. Recently liberated, the bike was carefully cleaned and given a full re-commissioning, including new battery, carb rebuild and general service. Now, in great running condition, the bike is ready for the next owner to enjoy.
Sold on a clean, clear California title in non-op status, so no back fees are due.
