    Hello,
    When I bought my Ford based Sportster last year unfortunately it didn't come with a build manual.

    I contacted Marlin and asked if they could sell me one, but they had already started the process of selling the company and couldn't help.

    I'm wondering if anyone has a copy of the Ford manual they would be able to scan. There is very little information on the club website and it seems BMW based Sportsters far outnumber the Ford based ones, so google isn't much help either

    I'm particulary interested in any parts lists information.

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    The BMW one didn't come what you would consider a traditional manual, it was a CD with pictures. I'll drop you a PM.

    Hi Andrew

    The Ford based Sportster was derived from the Ford based Cabrio, so one part of your information could come from the Cabrio build manual.
    I have a complete printed copy in ring binder pockets you are welcome to for the cost of postage if you would like it?

    Regards

    Mike Garner
