1968 Harley-Davidson 883cc XLH Sportster Engine no. 68XLH8202 The evocatively titled Sportster has been a permanent feature of the Harley-Davidson line-up since its arrival in 1957. Intended to compete with the sportier British twins, the XL Sportster was leaner and meaner than previous Harleys and boasted an all-new overhead-valve v-twin engine producing 40bhp. Progressively improved and updated, the XLH was introduced with its sparse good looks, electric start and 12 volt system. Always ridden hard and invariably modified, not many have survived the ensuing years intact. On offer is as near-stock an example as you are likely to find. The bike retains the 19” Harley wheel up front as well as the often-switched-out for-a-smaller-size 18” at the rear. The bike was languishing in the corner of a collection for several years, but with a cleaned carb, a new battery and starter solenoid, it fired right up. Having been further gone through by a marque expert, the bike is offered in good riding condition. The engine sounds good, gearbox shifts well, brakes and suspension work as they should. Cosmetically, the bike is in good overall condition. Tank has been repainted at some point and there’s a small tear in the seat.

The sale of one of the finest 1968 H models I have seen probably back to about 1970. Most of these were chopped, raced, beat, and well you get the idea. Seat is probably a renew Ignition lock was replaced by new version (eagle iron) Spokes look to be polished stainless. Left handlebar has retard advance twist (the timers are auto advance units from factory) Gas tank might be original paint and there is a small dent at the meeting with the seat (common from a buddy seat improperly installed) Newer Dunlop Tires And for some ungodly reason someone painted the rocker boxes Black The unusual pluses: The original hardware is there and those that were replaced were replaced with correct CP or circle F bolts The wiring harness is mint The correct Tillotson carb was thoroughly rebuilt The air cleaner has the original copper mesh New Harley Davidson Battery last year I do not know if the mileage on the speedo is correct but the bike certainly has that look to it.
