Yeah it sucks when someone takes it all away from you in a matter of seconds.
Not a chance in hell......
It was a nitro project. I have no clue if it ever got finished / ran.

I considered buying this 'first model year' Harley edition ( yr 2000 ), but I found out the engine had to be removed due to all the rubber ( smog & hoses ) on & around the engine was becoming dried & brittle.
That small V8 is buried under the dash..... Nearly impossible to work around the rear.
( It was in storage for nearly 10 years)
The actual cash value is not much more than a standard version truck with options.
The guy wanted 3-times it's value, due to the badging.
It was a very pretty piece of crap.
That's another thing. Those Harley parts are expensive. You own a Tahoe/Yukon you see expensive parts at the dealer. The mark up on Harley parts has the dealer beat.
Most were aftermarket. I tore almost all the Harley parts off it except the engine and frame. The front wheel (26”) was over $4000 by itself.
WOW! $4000 for one wheel. Without the tire? Just the wheel? If it bolts to a Harley, all the parts can be expensive.
Custom order wheel.
.........all those TV shows building resto-mods...... They don't mention the $$$ on the "hand built" wheels ( IF you had to purchase them )
Yes, they're all custom order wheels when you get to the 26-30’s. $$$$
That is a sick looking Harley, never owned one but rented several thru out the years.
