Nothing tells me what I need to know about a bike like a bunch of pictures of random parts in a box.

Scam of the week. (So I’m not posting the link). I don’t know how this scam is worked.... but I see plenty like it.

Generally, they just don't know what they really have. Could be a Suzuki Rotary for all they know.

No title no ODO. Probably need to run the VIN numbers. Wording on the ad is a little suspect and $1000.00 is a little high for a parts bike with no title that does not run.

"1978 Harley Davidson Anniversary Edition Sportster. Selling as found in friends garage. No title. I never had a title. I don't know if you can get one or not. Selling as found. Appears to be somewhat complete. No odometer. Does not run. Don't know what it will take to get it going. I only know it's not seized up."
