Gents, need some help. I was able to move the pistons on a project bike. I got 130 and 150 psi on compression test. On a 2004 vtx it suppose to 171. It was a cold bike and is that a difference? Need opinions. Would this suffice? Or rebuild? Mighty obliged for any help

I am no expert but those sound pretty darn close to the target. I would think they are close enough that a piston/ring rebuild should not be done at this time. Get more of the bike put together - at least to the point where you can start and run the engine and see how it runs. Then make your decision.
