My first Harley Davidson was a 1977 XLCH that I bought brand new for $3280 from Wykle’s HD in Traverse City, Michigan. I wish I would have kept it. One thing I can say is it started me off into a HD journey that still continues.

I am fairly sure my '68 xl, which a lot of you know I still have, was $1400,can't swear to it though because I swapped a '65 Impala for it. The wife was not a happy camper when I came home from work on a Harley and no longer had a car. BTW we had two kids at the time and a third on the way.

I'm assuming you bought it without asking and then begged for forgiveness, best way lol

Yes I bought it without saying anything. Since she is still with me after 57 years I assume she got over it.
