Clean 2003 with issues?? for sale...$750

I started to notice a knock?? front cylinder and decided to park her and check into it further. That was about a year ago, and I just have not had the time to research it. And, since I was gonna check it out I never added Stabil to the tank. Tried to start her up yesterday and I have crank but won't start. Will drain fuel and seafoam the carbs and try again. Regardless, I have lost interest and my VN deserves a new home. She is a 2003, always garaged, I have done all maintenance myself, 22xxx miles, only mods...I relocated the stock R&R, braided lines, and I added after market manual chain tensioners (which I never really messed with too much). I have a trailer and may consider delivery to the buyer, (I am located in NJ but travel back and forth to FL). Please note that I will not sell parts off this bike, and what you see in pic is what you get...including manual tensioners, bags, and the rear rack. I also have other parts/accessories off our past VNs (this is our last one)and will post another day. If interested probably best to PM me. $750 as is. Regards, John.

when will you be traveling to FL? I'd be interested if the knock isn't what I think it is.

Doc, I just don't have the time to mess with it or the garage space. Installed manual tensioners and played with 'em a bit but not quite sure how to properly adjust...lost interest, hence up for sale. But, once I move out my trailer I will try to start her up.
