Title: XLCR 1977Hours: 0 Cost: $0.00
Work Descrption: Picked up my CR at the Mid Ohio swap meet. I got the bike from a friend . It was in fair shape. Larger parts were on the bike . Lots of parts were in boxes . Many parts were missing . Not being families with the Ironhead Harley I did a lot of reading and certainly got a manual . YouTube is always a good source for really good descriptive info as well.
