    Hello!

    Hi everyone.
    Just saying hello as I’m new on here. At the age of 68 I’ve recently acquired my first Harley - a 1991 1200 sportster. Not on the road yet as it requires a few jobs completing; hoping to sort it out for next year. Would really appreciate any help you guys could offer regarding the sourcing of parts, etc.
    I’ll try not to be too much of an Old Age Pest with my questions.
    Thanks in advance,

    Welcome to the forum fae the wilds of Fife. Your never to old to get your first HD. The sporty range are very competent and adaptable bikes, I have a 2016 Iron myself. Re sourcing parts you've got fairly limitless options whether you go for HD branded parts or cheaper after market one. Usual starting places are your HD dealership, ebay, Jersey HD, Hogfathers, W&W, Zodiac and Custom Chrome. Stick a picture of your bike up when your ready, and just get stuck into posts and threads.
