1957 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.

This one isn't perfect, but it appears as though most of the original bodywork is there. It does have non-correct carbs, bars, exhaust, seat, magneto and probably a few more things that the experts out there will be able to see, but if you've ever wanted an early Sportster, this may not be a bad place for the start of a restoration.
