Motor stuck

I have a 1998 Dyna Wide Glide. Straightened a curve out bent the forks, and flipped it. I’m just putting it back together. Rebuilt the front forks and got the tire and fender on it but tried to start it and found it with start to turn over and then dead stops. It will move about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch but then stops. The starter will turn it that much but then it stops dead. What would cause the motor to be locked up. Put it in 5th gear and tried to turn the motor that way but it still is locked up?

Have you pulled the plugs? Cylinder maybe full of gas, or oil.
