    It's an XLH. Those are the ones that are EASY to start. He should try an XLCH with the magneto. He'd have some REAL fun with one of those!

    WHY SO MANY KICKS ? IT SHOULD BE ONE KICK START OR HALF KICK START. CHECK AND SERVICE HYDROLIC PUSH RODS, AND VALVE TIMING.

    I remember cranking and cranking with my Dad on his 1963 Sportster. Some days we didn't get to ride. We had 3 mechanics check it out along with a couple of electricians and nobody could find anything wrong. We still loved the black beauty I only wish I knew where it was I would go buy it if possible.
