I might look at that one as it's close by. Since it's not a running bike, I'd want to dissemble and check the engine. At least remove heads, jugs, primary and cam covers.

You just can't trust any random engine rebuilding.
I went to see a guy about a bunch of assorted parts. Real nice guy and self claimed IH guru. He was putting an IH together, rebuilding the engine, the push rod covers were open and I took a close look, gave the pushrods a spin, and the pushrods were covered in grit.

A shop I worked at for a number of years. Everything you need to do an Ironhead tune-up.

Looks good. The equipment costs a fortune when you buy it, but it's tough to get your money back out of it when you go to sell.

Agreed 100%. The big pieces arent the big money, its all of the accompaning tooling. In this case, all of that equipment has long paid for itself.
