Sportster Chopper Guide Number Two

Picked up this gem on eBay.  It's the Sportster Chopper Guide (Number Two) from Big Bike Magazine.  It doesn't have a publishing or copyright date but, based on the ads, I believe it's from 1970.  How amazing is the front cover bike?

Lots of topics are covered from raking your neck to installing struts:

How to mold your frame in 6 easy steps:

The bikes featured are awesome.  I LOVE the style featured throughout the magazine. I wonder how many of the bikes in this magazine survived.

The prices are crazy by today's standards.  Mufflers $8-25.  Headlights $7-30.  Sissy Bars $25-65.  Handlebars $10-15.

Springer front ends $200-300.  Struts $20.  Carb covers $15-20.  High-back contour seats $55-75.

How to make a sissy bar:

I swear the Biltwell pegs I just bought look almost identical to the ones featured here.  They cost a hell of a lot more than $5 or $7 but it's not 1970 is it?
