    V-Twin may have sourced better kick gears than the last one I worked on many years ago.

    Worst part is usually the kick gears & repops suck.

    '59 XLCH is my FAVORITE Sportster. Mine's not an attempt at a 100 point AMCA bike, but a period correct rider. To me, as fun as they get. As long as the numbers are good, $3K whether it's an H (reasonably complete) or CH, go for it!

    1959 sportster basket case

    I know a guy here locally that has a 59 sportster that has been apart for for a while he wants to get rid of,it appears to be mostly there from what I can tell and he is asked 3000 for it. Is that a reasonable price as I don't know anything about sportster? I am just trying to save it from a different fate that it could end up being scrapped after his passing. I know it's always hard to say when it's not in front of you and no pictures but just trying to get a general consensus.
