You don’t mention whether you have any documentation for either, which suggests you have registration issues somewhere in your future.

You don’t have any particular expertise or experience of these machines. Both are of interest to collectors, who will pay good money for either, under the right circumstances.

TBH, in your position I’d sell both lots and spend some of the money on a nice running Evo Sportster which your Dad would probably have appreciated. You can ride it and think of him, without the problems inherent in either restoration.

Just my 2c ..
this makes a fair bit of sense. you have not quite said how deep you want to go here. more than money, this will require patience. the evo is solid, easily had and will offer immediate gratification. life is short, get out and ride.
