Found on eBay: 1957 Harley-Davidson Sportster

There's something about really early Harley-Davidson Sportsters that we've always loved, and this one of the earliest. 1957 was the first year for the Sportster, and with less than 2,000 made that first year, this has got to be a fairly rare specimen more than 50 years later.

Found on eBay: 1974 Harley-Davidson Sportster 1000

Though we normally prefer more photos and a more complete description in our "Found on eBay" picks, this Sporster caught our eye for a couple of reasons.
