just quick question were 2005 flhtcse2 a good year with not many issues looking at one to purchase
2005 was first year for beehive springs which allows the use of cams with lifts up to .600"; however, there were many issue with valve guide seals in 2005. A running change was made late in the model year to replace the seals and many were replaced under warranty.
Of course there is the spring tensioner issue. It would be worth checking to see if those had ever been replaced. Have a dealer run a check on the VIN. If the bike was dealer serviced, the records will be in the system.
2005 models you could still adjust the primary chain, IMO a good deal
