Default project 74 sporty

OK guys here it is I've been wanting to put this together but I'm 63 yr.old disabled vet and now with worse leg problems I'm thinking about getting rid of my project 74 sporty I've rode this since 76 and in i5 I started to build it as a top gas drag bike I was racing pro drag and got tired of sitting most of the time.it has s an s 4 13/16 bottom end with 60 over cyl.done by lakeshore hd.heads wer done by them also with there best gas porting they wer the home of the world's fastest sportys at the time so I left what needed done to them.it has brand new still in the box sifton barracuda cams from 19 85 s an s super b carb still needs ign.and primary chain.has wet clutch and all the other stock parts frame front end brakes swingarm and an xtra 6 over front end what is it worth. Motor bottom end and top end are assembled but cams are still in box and tranny is assembled and installed by lakeshore when I got it back I had another lay down chassis for it and all I had to do was clutch install cams and carb and go racin.well wife got pregnant twice and she was afraid I'd wreck and now I don't really have enough money to put it back together in the street chassis and race it.she,s still afraid I'll wreck it. How much can I get guys

Get on it and get out to the track, you could get hit by a bus standing on your front porch!

Getting out there will also delay the onset of oldtimers disease.

Do some wheelin and dealin to scrounge up the bits you need to finish the motor.

Make a list you may find some "hand me downs" here.

It will sell for more if you have a time slip for it! (tell her that)

Then tell her an even faster time slip will bring more money for it....
