91 Sturgis

Love the US classic bike scene, you either love it or hate it - Harley, Indian etc.

91 Sturgis

Postby owen68 » Tue Mar 02, 2010 4:59 pm

I'm afraid my bike is no classic, a 1999 XJR (well I like it).
But a good mate of mine's Dad recently passed away. He was the proud owner of a '91 Sturgis (FXDB, no idea of frame numbers).
This hasn't been ridden in 9 years, has spots of corrosion but was garaged and looked after.

Not sure if a 91 HD counts as a classic but any ideas of a fair price?
And what should I look out for, I am no mechanic...

Hi owen

Is the Sturgis the black/grey one that had a belt final drive, I think the first one from HD?

I can only suggest looking on eBay for similar models and sourcing your nearest HD dealer for advice, it will still be worth a few bob I am sure as the choppper boys will always be looking for donors.

Honoured to be accepted, even if my bikes not over 25 I am! Not sure if that makes me a classic though

Re the Sturgis is the first belt drive one, this model was only made for a year etc. Thanks for the links

Out of interest are there any other mechanically dyslexic out there...

Yep, but that's all part of the fun and learning for me.

Sturgis from what I understand from some freinds that are hardcore HD riders was one of the better models. I admit that it does look nice. Welcome to the forum Owen. :208
You sick little monkey!!!!!

Interestingly ~ Classic Bike mag ( IMO ` wankers - !) once quoted as saying ~ (Trident ) "Not for the mechanically inept "
