Haha! I now I should have written 'resurrect' instead of 'start'.
The ones who put them in a box are the ones who 'improve' their bikes 'Make a bobber out of it!' or 'make a old school 70's choppa!' While ruining a perfectly good bike and which will end up in an old cardboard banana box...

Yeah, the pictures on the listing had me interested, parts all over the shelves of an old basement, surrounded by antique car parts. He said it was his friend's, was a father-son project that never got past taking the whole bike apart. I really just wanted a frame to play with and a spare motor for my other bike, but it turned into me wanting to build a whole 'nother bike. The frame is pretty rusty, the front end was completely rusty and frozen so I sold it as parts for dirt cheap, now this will be the home for my vintage springer that's been waiting for a home so patiently.

Anyway, I've got the motor torn down to just the crank in the cases, I should split it and re-seal the case while I'm this far huh... The crank, surprisingly, seems to be in really good shape. Bearings feel nice and smooth, connecting rod feels nice on both ends, wondering if I should bother replacing the main bearings or not...

Looks pretty clean to me as well...I have encountered problems with engines that sat torn apart.. at Minimum dump some diesel into the crankcase then dump it out and look for Rust...
But... Wait... You got this one intact ...correct??.. Not too scary that way!!!

The primary cover and all primary drive bits were completely missing, and the cam chest was cracked open, thanks to Flame_ for a good set of cams and an eBay listing of the entire clutch assembly/sprocket/primary chain. Luckily even though the rear cylinder was totally frozen, it didn't seem to affect the crankcase too badly. And luckily as well the transmission looks to be in very good shape, all of the gear teeth look really nice.

Here is one of the cams:

From the look of that cam lobe I feel you can easily assume the rod bearings are junk.

Kinda reminds me of Blowupsters bike from New Orleans when he first started,

I considered that a Hurricane Katrina restored Ironhead. Lots of salt damage.
