I have a 72 sportster with a problem kick start. At first the kick start started slipping, then it seized up. Any suggestions?

Sounds like it may be your kick start gear has come loose.

Open the right side cover on your tranny and make sure the clutch gear and starting gear are in the proper place and working properly.

Refer to your parts manual for an illustration on proper positions and to your service manual for how to open, repair, and reassemble.

BTW, post some pics.
