Great info, help with all my questions


The manual was right on time. So thankful for my new bible to my bike.


Book is shy on some details and some diagrams are low detail

Thank for your time


This was a very good gift to my Step-son, that has just bought his first HD. Older Sports can be a real challenge, he pays attention to his bike, his common sense, and this book on his bike, he should be on the right. Keep us old HD riders in mind as you have. It is nice to get my part I need for my Pan-Shovel.


Great product


was exactly what was described and I needed,perfect. Only complaint, paid for 2 day shipping and took 3, but no big deal.


good read


Great, Helpful

JC Denis

Excellent service and friendly staff.


The book gave the information that I needed to start my project.This hardbound will be perfect in my library.


I have always known Haynes manuals to be a good source for repairs for both cars and motorcycles. However, this "manual" is more of a coffee-table book on the history of the Sportster motorcycle. It tells you where certain parts are located on the motorcycle, but fails to include details as to how to remove or repair them. I am very disappointed in this purchase.


It has the basics, nothing extra.


Excellent manual with great illustrations, a fine resource for maintaining my bike,


Great quick reference for wide range of years, a must have for any Sportster enthusiasts.


Good manual. Pretty much all you need for alot of years, however your better off getting a year specific manual so you dont have to wade through so much information


Very good


If you are just looking for basic info, this is good. If you want to actually get a step by step, get the Harley-Davidson service manual.


Classic haynes book. need i say more?


great detail


Great book. Wiring diagrams are colored and its a hard cover. A must have!


Love the book! Very detailed. Wiring diagrams are colored and it a hardback.


always the best and first place I go to shop for any motorcycle parts or gear

Gary J DeSarno

Great manual , has everything you will need to service and repair you bike


An absolute must have


Good manual. Did not expect it to be hard back which was a bonus.


Good manual - well written, good pictures. A lot better than Clymer.


Again thanks when i needed to get here fast an you devivered with fast shipping an fair pricing!!


The right info for my project.


If it wasn't for this book I would still be scratchn my head. Thanks guys Yall are a life saver.
