Ironheads Rule! But still under construction
Welcome to My Ironhead Sportster
This site is about Motorcycles and Homebrewing. I'm into both.
I've owned several motorcycles over the years. My first bike was a 1956 Aeriel 500, also known as the Red Hunter. I bought it in boxes when overseas in the navy. I had a lot of problems with that bike, and finally bought a 1969 Triumph 650, also in boxes, from a friend while still in the NAVY in Florida. (kind of developing a pattern here) I got my current bike after getting into an accident riding a bicycle. I figured it would be good therapy. A bud of mine at work who rides a Sportster,(Wazup Chuck) kept working on me for not owning a bike, and I told himm that If I ever got another one, it would have to be a Harley. A few weeks later an add showed up on the bullitin board for a 1975 Sportster. It was a "Rolling Basketcase". A good bit of this site documents the work I have done on the bike.

The Sportsters from 1957 to 1984 are known as Ironheads. This model is the longest selling of the Harley Davidson Motorcycles. Todays Sportsters are the Evo Sportster.
