    I need some help finding out exactly what kinda of harley I have, this is my first bike. I traded a truck for it and know it is a 1977 harley hardtail, but dont know exact model. The guy I got it from claims it is a 1000 sportster but cant find any info on a 1977 sportster 1000? I have a few pics if somebody would take a look at em and maybe give me an idea of what model it may be

    Can you find the VIN number from the title, insurance card or off the frame tag?

    Pretty well got to be an xlch, very nice old bike. Like T said above you can read the VIN for more info. If it happens to be blacked out with a cafe style tank you would have a real nice find, harleys early version of the nightster. xlcr or xlchr something like that
    Post some pics

    Serial number should be on the title. There are several web sites that will help ID the model. Or you can go to a dealer and they should be able to tell you what it is.
