1973 Ironhead Hardtail Chopper

June 2008

Jay from Edmond, Oklahoma, United States, made available these pictures of his Harley Sportster Custom Chopper which has a 1973 Sportster Ironhead engine in a hardtail frame, and a girder fork.

This Ironhead chopper doesn't have a front brake; just a disc brake at the rear wheel. The XL Ironhead motor has an electric starter, no kicker.
