Trucks are looking good and the Sportster gets me wanting to get back to the Glyde.

I traded it for a 98 5.9 Grand Cherokee SE 4x4. wrecked it and insure paid 2500$

put that $ into the sportster in 2015 and rode it about 3 yrs. got a rod knock and now its rebuilt/painted 2019.

what I like about the 82 ironhead is - simple to work on & it is a HEMI combustion chamber head.

No junk there! I've had the pleasure of seeing the '85 stepside, and that's one cool looking and sounding truck! Real clean job under hood.
