For the height challenged the various softtail frame is a good one. I assume that might be the same for someone whose flexibility is limited by size. But, as others have already said, you might want to provide a little more info so someone can help with recommendations. I certainly agree with going for a stroll through the dealer, but don't take you wallet just yet.

As far as big twins go, a Softail Slim would do the trick. No bags unless you add them, low seat height, narrow bike.

Not sure about that, my riding buddy is 6'2" /260lbs and has a soft tail and he can barely get his leg swung over it.Sometimes I think an elevator might be the best for him......

Height comes from two places or combination of them.
Legs/inseam, Or torso/waist up.

I am 6`3" with a 36" inseam.
Others may be as tall but lesser inseam more torso.

Might be your friend is just to tight in the hips to swing easy also.

Or, just gettin' OLD like me ... Hips, knees, and back goin' out. No problem peeling my self off the bike but, in the near future, I may need a sling to get back on.

I think the last part is a lot of it. He is just sorta 'stove up' as well as getting a few years on him [he is 70] like Smoketown says. Seems like sometimes that bigger guys also get a little more stove up than some of us 'pee-wee' types
