    I just got my 73 Sportster for about $2500 and it is a runner with a clean title. I am finding plenty of stuff that will need to be fixed before I will take it out again, but I rode it 40 miles home after trading the car for it. There are lots of running ironhead sportsters around here for under $3000. I would like to have a Sportster from the year of my birth, except it wasn't introduced until the next year.

    That would make you 60? I pictured you younger.

    I carry a gun because I'm too young to die, too old to take an ass whooping, and a cop is too heavy.

It was an estate sale find, so figure he paid half what he's asking and should be happy to make a grand off you. Good Luck
    It's probably me. Based on our conversations he seems to be a real nice guy.

    He has been honest with me from the get go about a possible trade with a friend of a friend. I told him if he is going to get a killer deal on something then feel no obligation to me. I am working in Corona Ca so its not that far but far enough. If worst came to worst I would just tell my kids to pick it up for me. I really don't want to get it sight unseen but this project up here has turned into somewhat of a pain......and longer.

    I like kenessexs deal. But around here they are a little harder to come by. At least looking like the one I'm interested in.
