Would you buy an AIH knowing replacement parts are going to be hard to find?

My first search turned up the pulley that is proprietary and cannot be replaced (unless bought used on eBay, not a solution IMO). It can only be rebuilt but only one person does this (pray he doesn't get hit by a train).
Not sure how many more proprietary components I'd find as I search further.
I'm sure some of the components can be replaced by other components but the question is, for those familiar with AIHs, would you buy one now knowing that parts will be difficult (hopefully not impossible) to obtain?

Maybe a Slammer with a 117 if those things made it cheaper.
AIH is like building a bike in your garage except that built a shit ton.
Jettison the speedo - do the secret fix on the ECM - get a new trans or whatever to fix pulley.
I would go chain drive.

Fuck yeah I would, But they I would probably look to get it for 5k and strip the parts I want for my bike and use the rest as lawn arm. But that might just be me. 0.0

I'm not sure :-o
I was given one or more pulleys as an example of an AIH part no longer obtainable.

If you buy one, you'll probably end up replacing the trans anyway. Those "RoadMax" (roadkill) transmissions are junk and parts are unavailable.

@chopperfugger - Whats the ECM fix?

Cut the black interrupt wire going to the ECM.
Silly over-design that kills the bike when the tail lite shorts out.
If someone would pony up a schematic I would point it out to you all.
