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. One is it’s exacly the model featured in our March/April 2010 issue, and then there’s the fact that you just don’t run into many clean XLCH 1000’s that haven’t been chopped, wrecked or customized heavily.

The seller doesn’t provide too many details on this bike, but, according to the auction, the bike shown here has just 17,000 original miles. It’s received fresh paint, battery, tires and clutch, but other than that, it appears to be original and correct.

If you’re in the hunt for a good 1,000cc Sportster, this may be a good place to start. Our first request would be a full set of photos to verify more details.
