Found an 03 Wide Glide with 20K Miles that Guy is asking $6500 for. Cam Tensioners have not been addressed. Is this a Good Year for the Twin Cam?? I have heard that the Very Early ones still had a Timken Bearing and the Crank was still forged. Is my assumption correct?? I believe I can get this FXWG for $5000. Should I pull the trigger on it?? Thanks for all Valued Advice!!

That's a good price at $5k. I don't know about any of the problems you mention. I had an 03 Electra Glide that I put 50k on in the three years I owned it. No problems whatsoever. As long as the regular service has been performed on it I think you'll be okay. I did all the service work myself and I checked/adjusted the cam chain tensioner everytime I changed the oil.

Buy it and ride it like ya stole it! The tensioners should be good for another ~20k or so. I replaced mine at 38k.
