So's I got the old chopper out this weekend

I have an old chopper (87 springer softail bandido chopper) that I've had sitting in my living room for the past year.
yesterday we discovered I toasted the turbo bearings on my daily harley, so I decided to crank up the old bike while I teardown the other in a couple days.
It hasnt been started in two years.
We put a battery, fresh oil and fuel and it started right up and after a brief warm up and check of the tire pressure, I was tooling around on two again.
I washed it and hauled to my buddies and then from there we went to Hooters for lunch and then I went to pick up the girlfriend for a short ride. She wasnt impressed with the seat at all.
None the less, it was a beautiful day for riding

everything is the maltese cross theme, wheels, rotors, drive pully, paint, mirrors, sissy bar blah blah blah
its not one built to look like they did them back then, its built back then by a bandido who did the chop on it also. Its a period correct chopper, way to much gaudy chrome and billet and way not my style, but its a piece of chopper history and I'm leaving it just like that.

did you know it was in the storage when you bought it? Must have been a nice surprise.

yes, I knew of the bike, I hid it in there a year or so before (long story) and told them if that unit ever goes to auction, call me. One day I got a call and the rest is history.

what about title? is that not a problem when you get it in an auction? just wondering
no problems, paperwork shows where it came from, just use it to re-title, I just never have.
