XLH Sportster Front Brake Drum

Life's a bitch...   Thank God there's Harleys...

On this page we have collected some photos of the front drum brake of our 1973 Harley Davidson XLH Sportster showing the condition in which we bought it.


The plan is to replace the front end tubes by a springer front end, but we are seriously considering to keep the brake drum since we like its classic looks.

We really like that large brake drum but feel the front wheel diameter is a bit too small for the oldschool looks that we're after.
