Old Harleys are precious collectors items. They are sought after like never before. The old style padlock at the lower end of the headset, and the easy to manipulate ignition switch is not a big deal for an interested thief. Both they are not tamper-proof. If you are just over to warm your preferred peaches, and have to park your sled outside on the street, there is a solution. It is unobtrusive (without the red key) but effective. Press the red key towards the bike, turn it to the right, and remove it. The main power cable will be
interrupted, the bike will not start. Some folks call it immobilizer. This is not true though, as long there is a truck and some accomplices around. But it may help!

The time has come again to escape from trouble, traffic, and the trivia of all day live. The winding mountain roads within and the proximity of Andorra are the perfect ride for those days in spring. Andorra is nested in between France and Spain. Watch out for horses roaming freely about the mountains and detect gravel on the road in time. One tool, a decent corkscrew comes in handy, as from Andorra, there are vineyards in all directions. Or, if you are ready for that very special event: A three hours ride from Andorra you will find the renowned restaurant ". El Celler de Can Roca" in Girona, serving Catalan cuisine.
The bike obviously does not have the adequate space, nor the necessary attention yet. We strongly hope, that Bob turns his baby into a beauty soon. We encourage him by recommending a website with beautifully restored ironheads: https://www.bikeexif.com/tag/ironhead-sportster
