Bought 1998 HD sportster xl1200c :)

Hello guys just wanna share with you all my new toy Its a 1998 harley xl1200c with 18k miles. Some aftermarket parts include: yost tube, aftermarket mufflers, screamin eagles air cleaner and a lot of chrome parts. I love the bike since the first time i got on it. The previous owner really took a good care of the bike and it is the cleanest 12 years old bike i have seen. Ill try to take some better pictures but for now here it is

Congrats! Sporties are good bikes. Keep your eye open for one of the cruiser rides they are a good time.

Congrats on the scoot amigo - Let's ride.
