    I'm not sure if this has been mentioned yet, but what about a wreck? A lot of these bikes only have salvage titles because of "light damage."
    Usually their girlfriend scratched and smashed the lights (or set it on fire), the guy put too much armor all on the tires :ricky, a crinkled front fender, etc. Most are bashed in front ends like this one.

    Sure you'd have to check it all out but if you're going to chop it, so what? I think these are a deal in my area especially since asking prices for ironheads/shovels are asking upwards of $2-4k. If you have a low budget or are superstitious, get a light wreck and ride the hell out of it for a year or two, change it up later.
