First year of Electric start was 1965, and it appears to have the BIG Solinoid so it appears to have the electric start. Also the Pan was last made in 65, but that is not to say someone did not go the Pan/Shovel route.
It is Definatly older than 70 due to the generator side cover.
I would check the paperwork, and match it to the VIN, I doubt this guy will take 500 bucks, but you never know till you ask! if the engine rolls over, I would go as high as 2 grand to 3 grand depending on how well you like the bike, and it has the paperwork, but I do not know the laws of Canada.
Usually the Shovel big inch kits from 88 inch to 93 inch, so if he has a 90 inch, he did all the work himself which is usually unheard of, most folks buy drop in kits, but there are a few out there that actually work on their bikes.
if you get it, I will trade ya a 1978 CB750Four with all the Vetter Windjammer hardbags and front fairing, the saddlebags are quick detach. I live in FL, and I would not be willing to drive and since everyone on here hates the Ol HD, that makes mine worth WAY MORE than that bike, so to make the trade fair, you transport.
No really I dig it, and it would go nicely in my barn, like I need another bike in there, I say you go for it! but the guy might think it is worth what a new bike is................
I Can and will ride anything!
