No leaks or smoke. Runs probably better than off the line. I know that, because I rode one way back in the 1980s.
Original seat (can't find those anywhere), manual, Carb, and anything that was removed during rebuild comes with it. Restoring it back to original would be easy, just won't run like it does now. Smoothest shifting Sportster I have ever ridden.
The big dollar work is done, next owner can now bring it to show room level if they want or create what they want with it.
