I have owned this bike for 27 years and bought it as a bobber with the OEM 63 Mill and Tranny mounted in the wishbone frame. The frame is pretty much intact. Floorboard tabs and original horn brackets were removed. Sidecar loops still there. The neck was raked before I bought the bike to about 15 degrees and a gusset installed. I have never changed it. Because I didn't want to get rid of the frame I decided to retro the entire bike to my favorite year for color and tank emblems; 55/56. Over the years I have retro'd the bike to retain the nostalgic look with modern upgrades. It runs a belt primary and the engine venting has been rerouted outside of the primary case. It is a strong runner and is not a trailer queen. There is a very small amount of rust spotting on a bit of the chrome due to being on the Pacific coast six months out of the year. A change in life has found me not riding it enough anymore and I don't want it just sitting. It needs a new owner.
