For 1967, Sportsters offered the electric starter introduced on Big Twins two years earlier. However, it was only available on the XLH version; the sportier XLCH stuck with a kick starter, which remained on the XLH as a back-up to the electric leg.

The Harley-Davidson XLH Sportster offered a larger fuel tank than the XLCH.

As before, the XLH also carried fancier trim, including a large polished headlight nacelle, chromed rear shock covers, and a larger fuel tank.

Harley-Davidson ads in 1967 boasted of the Sportster's record-setting runs at Bonneville. Though these were highly modified machines, the company could still claim that "Nobody builds a faster stock motorcycle."

The Sportster's performance at Bonneville helped boost sales of the XLH.
