“Magneto Sportster” - 1958 XLCH

Here are some photos of my all original, including paint, 1958 XLH.

I purchased this bike from the original owner. It had been sitting since 1974. I cleaned it up and got it roadworthy, and rode it to Oley 2017.

This XLH was ordered with the high road clearance option, which is cool. It also has the dome covers on the shocks, which I think was 1958-only. I know the Legend Begins book is the greatest source, but it lists all years 1959 and later as showing the dome covers were deleted when ordering high road clearance on the XLH. And high road clearance was not available in 1957. So I find it neat.
