    Hi all : I was lucky enough ( I think) to find a 69 xlch sportster. Its buried in a garage , been there for 15-20 years, bike looks a little tough not to bad tho. Could not get a real good look at it. Was wondering if I should go after this project or dump it? Not sure about the mag and the pain of starting. Open for suggestions? I think the guy wants $2500. How is finding parts ?

    The XL Forum - For Sportster Enthusiasts!! Try this forum. These guys love restoring and riding the old Sportsters. As to parts they are still out there. I'm thinking the price is ok for a very solid bike that has been left mostly stock. $2000 is better

    That could be a fun project. You need to see if the engine still turns over first. It is going to need a lot of TLC IMO 2K would be tops Yes there are plenty of parts still out there Good Luck and post some pics if you score:s
