2003 marked the 100th Anniversary of the Harley-Davidson Motor Company. As part of the centennial celebration the MoCo issued a year of special anniversary edition motorcycles. The legendary Sportster was one of them.

In production since 1957, the 2003 Sportster featured some nice custom touches. This year would be the last year it would come with a frame mounted Evolution engine. All future Harley-Davidson Sportsters would come equipped with rubber mounted engines to reduce vibration

Here are a few pictures of the 100th Anniversary 2003 Harley-Davidson Sportster XL-883H Hugger, a nice middleweight cruiser full of torque, spirited personality, with a low seat height and sound that’s easy to love.
