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.
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 bike featured in our "Model Highlight" box to the left, 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.
Freestyle motocrosser Seth Enslow broke the existing record of 157 feet for a successful long distance jump aboard a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, sailing 175 feet through the air on a specially prepared 2010 XR1200. And he did it twice!
With an unbroken production run of 53 years, the overhead valve Harley-Davidson X-series Sportster has outlived all of its early rivals, and is still able to raise its middle finger to the vagaries of the motorcycle marketplace.
Chalk it up to the fact that our next “Under the Radar” focuses on the 1972-1985 Harley-Davidson Sportster, but this week we found ourselves trolling through eBay’s Harley listings to see what kind of old American Iron we could find.
Though we're big fans of buying bikes we can afford, ride and enjoy, we occasionally come across a piece of unobtanium that's just too cool not to be shared. This 1968 Harley-Davidson KR-TT is a perfect example.
Reeling from even worse than expected third-quarter results showing an 84.1 percent decline in net income over the same period last year, Harley-Davidson has announced it will shut down its Buell division and sell off MV Agusta, the Italian manufacturer H-D bought just last year. A visibly stunned and emotional Eric Buell, founder of the brand that carries his name, has posted a video announcing the planned December closure.

Forget everything you thought you knew about Harley-Davidson motorcycles, because the XR1200 is like nothing H-D’s ever made, including Harley’s 1970-1980 XR750 flat tracker that inspired it. Although everything about the XR1200 screams yesterday, it’s a thoroughly modern machine.
The Knuckleheads are coming! And so are the Fat Boys, Panheads and Silent Gray Fellows. Over a century of Harley-Davidson’s finest motorcycles will be on display for Harley-Davidson: Building a Legend. From its humble beginnings in Arthur Davidson’s backyard shed to its preeminent status as an American icon, visitors will learn about Harley Davidson’s fascinating history, while also getting a chance to learn about Studebaker’s role in the American automotive industry.
Add one more bike to the growing list of new retro-themed bikes — this time from right here in the good old U.S. of A. Harley-Davidson has released the new XR1200, a Sportster-based hot rod whose styling draws heavily from Harley history, mimicking H-D’s iconic and race winning XR750 of 1970-1980.
Though we've featured a few Harley-Davidsons (including a nice race-ready XR750 and a 1978 Harley XLCR ), the Servi-Car is a Harley that even some of the most die-hard V-twin fans aren't familiar with.
Stymieing U.S. buyers, earlier this year Harley-Davidson introduced the flat-tracker inspired XR1200, whose styling draws heavily from Harley history, mimicking H-D’s iconic and race winning XR750 of 1970-1980. The hitch? It was a Euro-only offering.
This week's eBay searching led us to an unusual discovery, and one that we just had to share with our readers. Between 1977 and 1979, Harley-Davidson produced just 1,923 XLCR's, and it's not too often you see them up for sale.
