Thread: Magneto Sportster's 1964 XLH Sportster restoration project

  1. Magneto Sportster's 1964 XLH Sportster restoration project

    I began restoring my 1964 XLH about 8 years ago, but after repainting the frame and sending the motor out to be rebuilt, I got sidetracked with other Sportster projects and this one sat in the corner of my laundry room. My 2020 New Year's resolution was to finish this project and get it back on the road where it belongs!

    A buddy helped me move it to my new house, and I got to work. I hope you enjoy the photos, and if you do I will post more as progress continues!

    Just as I finished buttoning up the front end and got the '64 to where you see it below, my girlfriend, MagKenzie, walked into my shop area and said "wow, it's actually beginning to look like a real motorcycle!"

    Enjoy the photos and good luck with your own projects! You can also follow my progress on the K Model and Sportster restoration/preservation group:

    I'm not Murph, but I'll take it as a compliment that you thought I was based on my project!
