2006 street rod engine seized?

Hi I picked up a 2006 Street rod that was abandoned (lien sale) as a project. Got it home and started cleaning it up. Tried to start it and just clicked. Got new battery clicked again. Pulled plugs and raised bike on jack and tried to turn rear tire in high gear and no joy. Got a socket and turned engine by hand and no movement. Put MMO and PB in the heads and let soak,got it to free up a lil bit. Worked it back and forth and was able to get 2 full counter clock wise revolutions. Then locked up but not fully. It will turn left about 1/4 turn and stop then right about 1/4 and stop. You can hear it hit something. Maybe heads. Just curious if you have any ideas. I will be pulling the motor shortly to pull the heads soon.

Valve(s) might be stuck open and piston hitting them. Likely bent by now so first thing I'd do is pull the heads as you planned on.

since you were able to do two full rotations before it stuck again I am thinking broken rod and not valves

Ok so if its the rod. What's the best option price wise. Rebuild or purchase a used motor?

it would depend on if the rotation pushed the piston into the cylinder wall and damaged it. You need to remove the engine and then the heads and investigate
rebuild gives many options like oversized pistons or higher conpression and such along the way. used second hand motor may have issues also that you dont know of.
me. I would rebuild and get a few more cc's maybe add cams and even a one quarter crank

All right thanks. I will keep you posted after I tear into. I will definitely need some advice on the best place to get parts one I find out what I need.

You never want to turn the V Rod motor counter clockwise, it can let the timing chains jump off the sprockets and will mess up the valve timing allowing the valve to make contact with the piston. You should probably pull the motor, remove the heads and see what the issue is.
