I believe they were XL's. I believe there were two models, the electric start XLH and the kickstart only magneto spark XLCH with the C standing for "Competition" model. The Sportsters where pretty hot performers back then.

Not sure but I think klx768 was right. They were probably XLs.

id like to help but what do you mean by "will turn over but will not crank"? does the engine spin "to easy, a bit fast"? check compression?
