The Harley-Davidson Sportster XLCH was one of the classic HD’s featuring the usual V-Twin powerplant. The original MSRP was around $1,600, it weighed 452 pounds, and Harley overstated engine displacement to make the bike seem more powerful than it was. Claimed to be a 900, this bike was actually a 883, which produced 50 horsepower and was capable of 120 miles per hour.

The XLCH had a few differences from its’ XLH sibling – it only came with a kickstarter and no battery, and the seats and tanks were also different. For more on the XLCH, check out this write-up from Motorcycle Classics.

This specific Harley-Davidson Sportster XLCH has 6,971 miles and looks great in the original orange. It still has the dealer sticker, and while there’s a few small scratches it’s claimed to be in remarkable shape. The front fender was cut, and the mufflers have been replaced. An oil cooler was also added, but it’s otherwise original. The seller says that it kicks over just fine but he hasn’t tried to start it – a phrase that I have to assume no one believes nowadays.
