Default 79' sportster, Skoal Bandit

Hello, I have a 79' sportster done up as a Skoal Bandit bike. It has the Skoal Bandit decals, green and white Skoal colors, chromed parts,etc. The bike had 1000 miles on it when I got it. I think it must have been a promotion bike for them. I am trying to find some information on it and am not having much luck. If someone can help me or steer me in the right direction I would appreciate it. Thanks,Matt1958

Hey Matt, I got your PM and found the picture in your album.

That's a cool looking bike and in great condition!
Ahhh, the good ole' days, I can remember when the grass was green and the irrigation systems were running.
