2001 Harley Davidson XL1200S Sport For Sale

Harley Davidson XL1200S Sport 2001

A very special Sportster sport in pretty much the original condition as it left the factory in 2001. With the exception of the seat and tyres everything is exactly as it should be. There are not many S models out there and virtually none that are in original condition. Buying an unbutchered Harley is never easy but it’s where the smart money goes every time.

The XL1200S Sportster Sport cost 40% more than the base model which explains their scarcity but by comparison with those cheap options this is a beast. With twin plug heads and a hot cam etc’ the engine knocks out some decent power and the fully adjustable Showa suspension and uprated brakes ensures you stay out of the hedge.

Now sportsters are discontinued you can expect the price of decent ones to rise fast. Many folk consider the 1986-2003 solid mount Evolution engined sportster to be the best of the bunch and the XL1200S is the best spec' from that period and arguably the pinnacle of Harley Davidson sportster production. Already a collectors dream but these are a fantastic useable bike loaded with performance and character too.

I am at heart a big twin guy and have an extensive collection from 1950 onwards. I bought this on a whim off my good friend and local Harley spanner ace who turned it up in a lockup locally. Looking at the MOT history it covered just 1300 miles in the last 15 years. It was a non runner but in incedible condition so I put my name on it. However it’s not really my thing, i’m a big lump and this is just too small for me. Sadly I just do not have the space to keep everything and I need that space for something else so the little sporty has to go.

This is running like a dream now and can be ridden away. Recent work includes…..
New Battery.
Oil and fluids changed using Harley original oils.
Full service including plugs, filters etc’ all original Harley parts.
Brake and carb’ overhaul.
New Avon Cobra Chrome tyres. The BEST tyres of period Harleys.
MOT until February 2022
Mileage is 8500 but this may rise a little as it’s in use. Judging by the MOT history this looks to be genuine mileage but I do not have supporting documentation.

I think the bike is as good as it looks in the pictures. Paint etc’ is almost spotless as is the factory black exhaust. There is one tiny nick in the rear mudguard just behind the seat but otherwise the bike is in remarkable condition throughout. Starts, runs and rides just like a new bike.

Only thing not 100% is a slight oil weep from the front nearside rocker cover corner. My guy says it’s an easy cheap fix but it’s hardy noticeable.

I have the big original buttoned seat and back rest that the bike was fitted with from new and will include it in the asking price.

I have the V5 in my name and this shows the bike was registered in the UK from new in June 2001 with 2 former keepers + me.

The asking price is high because this is a VERY good bike not a ragged out old chopped up POS. This really is a collectable classic bike which will gain value going forwards and it’s in the all important factory condition that always holds the money. If you want something cheap this is not it but if you want one of the best sportsters ever made in the best condition then this probably IS it.

Viewings welcomed but no test rides without cash in my hand and proof of insurance. I can email further photos if required.
