Question about 1979 Harley Davidson XLH 1000 Sportster
There is a test you can run on the starter but you need special ewuiptment to perform this test. You probably can take the starter out and take it to a local shop and they can test it. It sounds like the starter is dragging and probably needs to be rebuilt.

it maybe that the battery is getting old or is not the right rating if the AH Start rate is too low it will not have enough power to turn the starter motor. ensure the battery you use has enough Starting Amps rated. if this is not the issue have the starter motor checked out.
I hope this was useful.
