could be running too rich and worn plugs I would change them and readjust the Carb. A weak battery with not a lot of juice or a bad stator can short out under heat conditions lessening current for spark for the coils may be a possibility as well.

Too much money for a 1980 sportster.

Too much money, and it has a lot of mismatched parts; wide glide forks, rear fender & seat don't align, forward shifter looks wonky, rubber sleeves on forks? I'd be afraid that every time it needed work, you would have to research what year/model part you'd need. There's nice Evo Sportsters for that money. JMO

Hell I didn,t even look at the photos look at the blueing on the exhaust. Right there tells me running way way to rich. You need to go smaller on the jets S&S just saying
