Wait, it might be an xr 750, but either way, they are both very similar. i believe the XR ran an iron head, so its essentially a sporty in a flat tracker frame.

Sportys have nothing to do with "old" or "cruiser"
mines got a 28* neck = corners like rice
mines got bookoo power and torque = outruns most rice
mines got american made attitude (with a lot of made in china) = rice

That would explain the sweet exhaust. Is that an XR750 or a new sporty? The XR was ol Evel kenevels huckleberry.
