1979 Harley Davidson Ironhead Sportster Chopper - $1 reserve

Rego on hold

Get bidding on this classic to make it your own newest project.
Unfortunately I am selling it as I need to fund further ventures. Took this beauty on with all good intentions and have done some serious work to it but have found myself with too many projects on the go and one must be sacrificed.

Bought this bike a year ago - it had just been freshly re-vinned. Rode it until the rego ran out and have since put it on hold and have been building it to how it stands now.

Bike ran like an Ironhead runs.

Frame and motor numbers are matching.

Had grand plans to make the bike kick only and magneto ignition due to the fact that the ’79 was the last motor that was machined to accept kick start. Wanted that real chopper feel with basic ignition and no unnecessary shit.

Motor was running, looks like it’s been apart but unsure as to what has been done on it before it was mine.
Comes with factory intake manifold and carb (carb would probably need replacing or rebuilding)
Blanking plate made to cover starter motor ready for kickstart conversion
Clutch is all there but started pulling cable mechanisms out ready for kickstart conversion

Work done:
David Bird hardtail from the USA - 2” stretch, 2” drop (bolt on). Set up for welding once bike was fully mocked up
Complete top tube wrap to strengthen backbone for hardtail, also gives the head tube casting a seamless transition in to the top tube
1974-75 Super Glide front end
Harley Davidson risers with tracker style bars.
19” front wheel
16” rear wheel
Loom removed and fully labelled.

First 3 photos are how the bike is now

What you see is what you get. Bit of a basket case but all in all is a semi complete bike and a good chance to get a nice chopper (eventually).
