The Sportster is the lighter-weight line in Harley's roster, but hardly less desirable, especially in 95th-anniversary trim.

The 1998 Harley-Davidson XL-1200C Sportster line included a custom model that could be ordered with the company's 95th-anniversary trim. Just 3,000 were ordered that way, raising their value to collectors.

The V-twin gained aluminum heads and cylinders in 1986, when it transitioned to Evolution status.

Tank badging says it all. The Sportster traced its roots to 1957.

Only 3,000 XL Customs sport this engraved plaque. This one identifies this bike as No. 1,409 of the 3,000.

The anniversary logo was nicely stitched into the available passenger backrest.
