    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. $$$$
