Default $700 Ironhead ? Good value? depends who you ask



About a week ago, I picked up this 1971 XLH for $700. It was parked for about seven years in a open air covered "shed" here in Az. Coincidentaly on that day another forum member posted some requested info on how to ressurect an Ironhead that was in hibernation for about 6 years. I commented on how I was about to address this $700 slumbering beauty. That comment recieved some additional comments on how I seemed to have gotten a great "deal" on such a inexpensive Sportster. I seem to think that I actually overpaid, but for some, perhaps it would be a good value. Here is just the not-so-short story on what it took this past week to get to the "after" portion of this bike which now has about 600 or so miles on it since I trailered it home last week.
The value comparison lies in how much work the owner can perform, and what they would need to sub out, what parts and supplies they have on hand and what still needs to be sourced and bought, and lastly how shiny their finished project would need to be.
I personally have a stash of usable parts that I can source from, own all the tooling needed and dont give a rats a** about shiny. For someone working with the opposite, the following tasks would be a bit more spendy and timing would be at the mercy of the shop of their choosing.
Bear in mind, I purchased this bike through some friends of friends. The owner, an avid "car guy" says he has been having trouble keeping pistons from scuffing. He was on his third set of aftermarket piston/cylinder kits from one of the major aftermarket suppliers. He also mentioned throwing all sorts of new parts at it including a complete rebuilt lower end, Andrews gearbox and some Andrews cams. All of these parts were purchased over his ownership in the previous ten years and about 100 mles. (Disclaimer: Freinds of mine that have seen the bike run, have commented on it always performing fine. Turns out, this was long before he decided to "fix it" with all of these new parts.)
First day...
Purchase battery, clean S&S carb, remove return oil line and add some oil to oil tank.
Start the engine and puke about 2 qts into auxilery pan and run for a few. Reconnect return line and top off tank.
Drain and fill primary.
Lube cables adj clutch.
Rebuild front dual calipers and front m/c.
Install rear tube and service rear bearings.
Reassemble vitals to be able to go for quick neighborhood test.
Test ride.
Total time spent up to now:
About 7 hrs
Parts: Oil, caliper and m/c kits, brake fluid, S&S kit (as stated above, I have availble parts to grab from from years of stashing. listing parts for mortals to compare what real world would need to outlay)
Day 2
Previous day test ride revealed some mild internal engine noises, sticky shifting trans but overall a running bike that to the unfamiliar ear, probably would continue riding.
Start methodical disassembly to determine noises.
Remove Generator. Discovered gen gear loose. Reinstall
Test ride. Same noises.
Remove tappets. Nice new Jims tappets, good block fit, nice rollers. Good news but no answers yet.
Remove Cam cover. Nice new PB+ cam set. lots of cam shims. Some metal debris in the cam cover, no signs of cause of metal debris.
Lets look in the primary for noise cause.
Remove cover, find comp loose, but intact. not the noise I was looking for. Noise was on steady cruise and speradic
Next, lets pull rocker boxes. Acorn nuts on the head bolts tells me there are studs in the head bolt location. Luckily studs come out with acorns like head bolts would. Remove heads and rockers. Good grief..piston intake reliefs are in the exhaust location. Luckily no signs of valve contact though. Stamped as STD bore pistons.
Inspect rockers, all good. nice bushing fit, correct location.
Disassemble heads, looking for collar to stem collision ect. Nothing but nice new black diamond valves and new guides with good fit. Chuck valves in lathe, nice and straight. Fresh valve job looks ok. No official signs of noise yet.
Next remove base nuts (standard nuts, not tall oem units). Cylinders slide off with a bit of resistance revealing some scuffing on skirts. Aside from scuffing, they look like fairly low mileage confirming PO parts story.
Double Good Grief!... PO story states that lower end was done by a local guy in the East Valley, that has done a few million lower ends. Perhaps this unit was done by one of his apprentices. Upon cyl removal, I discover this particular lower end was evidentally assembled by a womans rights activist because they seemed to think the female rod should take precidence to the front of the engine. This reveals the engine noise. the rods have collided with the skirts of the cyls, relieving them for a future stroker build. It really must have made a horrific noise upon initial contact. Rods are new aftermarket, but now are deemed useless as they are severely beaten up. The looks of these rods no where near resembles the slight noises I was hearing, but apparently this is the source. They look like they would have made a horrific racket.
Lunch break
Knowing now, engine is coming out, lets pull the trans. Trans comes out revealing the Andrews gearbox which at quick glance appears fine. 23 rollers come out in nice shape hopefully indicating a standard properly sized right case race. Set trans aside.
Remove oil tank, battery tray, starter ect.
Enough for today.
About another 7 hrs
Day 3
Remove remaining cases from chassis.
Remove oil pump and quick visual inspection. No damage whatsoever to pump body, breather tower ect. Surprisingly with the amount of cyl skirt material in the breather cavity. There are also no half moon retaining clips to be found. They must be on someones workbench somewhere. Otherwise looks very usable.
Split the cases, remove the remaining bits of cyl spigot.
Split the flywheels. remove shafts ect. Shafts, tapers and thrust washers look good.
Remaing part of the day is devoted to cleaning.
About another 8 hrs


image hosting
Another 8 hrs
Day 4
Measure everything and make parts list.
Gasket kit (on hand)
Rod/crankpin/bearings and retainers (on hand)
Piston set
Hone Cyls (Cyls were a plug fit @3.000"-no clearance. collision from rods were able to be relieved in a stroker style relief and radiused. Closely inspected)
Purchase STD piston/ring kit in town, hone cyls for .0035"
Pull rod kit from stash.
Paint heads and cyls.
Reassemble heads.
Install 6 helicoils in various locations.
Repair busted off upper sprocket cover mounting ear that came in the box of spare stuff. Weld and fit.
Pull misc parts needed from stash: ex pipes, hanger, int clamps, motor mount washers, breather tower retaining clips
Repair footrest bracket (missing tapered peg mount, machined and welded new one on as not to donate any of my matched sets)
Enough for today
8 hrs
Day 5
Assemble and true flywheels
Install into cases with new Timkens.
Assemble case halves
Install oil pump, cams and cover.
Prime oil pump with psuedo tank (funnel and line to feed port) visually verify rod oiling by rotating rods and plugging top end fittings.
Install pistons, cyls, heads, rockers and int man parallel to ign cover.
Dissasemble trans on bench, find damaged top hats. Inspect trans and tower completely and find no other damage or suspect parts. Perhaps installed old hats?? Replace hats and reassemble trans.
Previous measurements showed new round right race with std bearings.
Installed trans.
Reassembled primary with low mileage clutch, measured clutch spacers to verify upgraded length.
Installed into chassis with correct spacers and washers.
8hrs
Day 6
Reinstalled Dyna S ign with what appears to be new adv unit. Disassembled and lubed unit prior to install.
Did some wire repairs/ replacement on the minimalist wiring. Did not heed my own advice and did not install a bar mounted kill switch. Perhaps if i keep it i will. Painted the reg and spruced up the battery tray and support.
Reinstalled starter and bendix assy (looked like new bendix gear, hasnt missed a beat yet)
Flushed oil tank and installed new lines.
Reassembled remaining parts, ex, gen, carb, brake pedal. (rear shoes looked like new when I had rear tire off for tube.)
Started bike, verified once again top end lube through front rocker cap, verified oil return and dynamic timing. Quick spray for manifold leak check. All systems go.
Quick trip around the block, select all gears.
Park it with fan on it. 113F outside, wait until eve.
Pack flashlight, 1/2", 7/16" and small flat blade screwdriver.
Head out into the desert eve air. Quick 30 miles.
Another 8 hrs atleast.
Day 7
Wake up early.
Look over bike. Check some critical fasteners. Look at plugs, adj pushrods.
Grab same assortment of tools as last eve.
Ride off into the desert morning air for breakfast 80 miles away in Wickenburg.
Eat, ride home. One last look over.
Easy as that.
Now, was that a "Good Deal", a "Good Value"????


image hosting
This is the after pics. After 47 hrs and my outlay of $450-$500. It doesnt look very much different from the "before" pics. It still wears the same "brown" chain (brand new from PO with Az dust on its surface. It is very much a very good cond chain in spite of its external appearance. If it was customer, add anothe $150). It still has the chipped chrome, same chipped up paint on tins and frame, and I havent serviced the chassis yet.
If you base hourly rate of shop at $100, thats $4700 in labor. Not including parts. I had the lions share of parts at my disposal, and the capabilities of the additional welding and repair equip. Most shops charge by the particular tasks. How much is a heli-coil thread repair? $25ea?? I recall atleast 6. Add that in. Add in the cost of parts that would have been replaced instead of repaired. EX: Footrests.. $150?? (Im guessing), but it adds up quick.
Now I have a solid good running IH that arrived with a good portion of usable parts, most that would have to be replaced on a higher mileage bike brought to a shop in the "before" condition. Signifantly raising the repair bill by $1000-$2000.
So after this very long winded post, you will never know what Value, or Good Deal is until you get into it.
I look today on CL and i could step into an EVO XL for $3000 all day. there are some low mileage BT's for $5000. There is some CL IH's on this forun today, shiny and low mileage solid bikes for asking $4500. I dont need another IH, but I now have this one for give or take $1400. I had to give a week of my life to it, but that is what I like to do. So if I look at it from a monetary standpoint, I lost my a**. Now if i look at it from a severely demented IH lover and tinkerer, i stole it.
So when an IH comes up for sale for $700, take a step back, reread this post and decide which side of the fence you belong on.
On certain days, I still dont know.
Apologies for the long wind, but the topic comes up quite often with answers that are pulled from someones rear with no background to base their comments on. Here it is in black and white.
You decide on the meaning of "Value"

Great story! That bike still has a lot of potential! And I know where there is a nice set of original paint "Tins" including a Boattail seat for that bike in Sparkling Burgundy!

Coincidentally I already have a Boattail! And another '71!
To add to my point, the added cost of the tin set would raise that $700 another $1000-$1500?? Then i would have to put on one of my drum brake front ends, or someone would have to buy one to put on, front wheel bars, carb ect to bring the "Value" into a "71 Boatail. Sometimes the value just isnt there to make concourse.
And by the way, its not a "story", its how it really happens, but I get what you mean.
Thank you for readingthough, atleast it didnt go unheard.

Excellent write-up, Iron Mike.

Thanks for taking the time to post it here for us.

I for one am envious of your knowledge and skills that you have gained over the years.

Interesting replies guys.
Thanks of course for the compliments but it really all the steps simply covered in the service manual, nothing stellar or unobtainable.
What’s funny is the fact that the comments so far lean towards the “good” value side of the fence.
I’m still torn.

Great write up and resurrection of a worthy cause. Kudos to you Iron Mike.

The title of the thread says it all. Depends on who you ask if it's a good value. Depends on what you want out of it. If someone already has an ironhead and wants an andrews transmission, andrews cams and an S+S carb then for $700 they've got all that and alot of spare parts too.

But If the average guy wants to make it a running ironhead but can't do any of the work then it becomes an expensive bike and a bad buy.

So for you I say it's a good buy,though maybe not great, because you can do all the work. I get the feeling you enjoy working on this stuff so that's another consideration.

NeedSpeed hits it right on the head. It would cost me that much for a day at Disneyland and I would come home empty handed(except for one of those hats with the ears). Oil/Gas industry is a bit slow right now, so I needed something to fill my week. Plus I’m tired of storing all these parts and need to start using them up.
I think I see another “Good “ deal on a 1970 locally. This one has a kick start and doesn’t have that ridiculous giant battery in it. I wonder what the seller thinks a good value of an old IH is?? I don’t think the guys at work will miss me for another week!!
Beaty is most certainly in the eye of the beholder!
