I don't see many running ironhead Sporty's around here for $2K. If it's got a clear title, and your friend realizes he WILL have work to do, sounds like a fair price.

Just remember....sportys have always been the more abused model of HD's....so look closely when you buy it. I wouldn't buy one without seeing it in person first. If you have a friend that is knowledgeable on em....drag him along. It's nice to know what hd numbers look like also....nobody needs a hot bike.
