Hi Guys

I'm restoring a 72 XLCH, to original condition; not intending concours but it would be nice to get it close to.

I've already had the paint job done, what I'd welcome is pics of original machines of this year so I can see what should be chromed, painted or whatever. Unfortunately Bruce Palmer hasn't done a "How to Restore" book for Ironheads yet, unless someone knows different! :D

I already have the factory sales brochure for this year, BTW, so it's "unofficial" shots I'm looking for.

You can e-mail me on

Many thanks in anticipation.

Hi Kev,

From my Sporty gallery on the HDRCGB, it's still in there somewhere...
