Gonna run it stock, when I get done. I figure it's going to run me a few hundred to get it done, then my wife is going to take it away from me.

Of you're looking at all name bend Harley part or "screamin' eagle" parts.. you're going to ay a lot more then a few hundred. That was the other reason I stayed away from Harley. I looked at an 1989 sportster just before I bought my Bandit. It reminded me of my fathers nd I really wanted it bad. Thankfully my father reminded me how much he dumped into his and only received 1/3 of his investment when he sold it.

Not really. I have every thing I need, including the wiring harness. All I'm going to be buying is the tires.

Then I guess you're in luck. Lol. I always wanted to pick up a basket case, but with my luck I'd be missing parts or it would be a box of mismatched parts. I'm not broke but I definitely don't have the funds for a commitment like that.
Good luck with it and post some pics on your progress.

Cleaning the garage out this next weekend, setting up my workbench and getting ready to pick it up and start in a couple weeks, if all goes well. It won't be a weekend and I'm done. I'm nowhere near as nutty as he is about them. (The one he's keeping is a 35k custom.)

I need to get a spot cleared in the garage also. Recently I came across the very first dirtbike I had as a kid. Picked it up as a project for my son. (I'm going to secretly relive my childhood through him). When I found it, I felt like a little kid again and had to have it.

1987 Yamaha bw80 "big wheel"

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I prefer a Harley. I sold my sportster in 1996. I bought a Yamaha Virago a year later. A very nice shaft driven bike. Sold it s few years later when I became a father.
