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:

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.

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?
