DSC07228.jpgI recently bought this. I am no expert, so can someone let me know if it looks pretty original or are there a lot of wrong parts on it?
I'm gonna turn it into a "captain america." lol. After reading in my "Panheads" book by Greg Fields, it states that you could have a special order solid color painted in 1963, could this maroon possibly be original paint that was special ordered? At any rate, I'm probably gonna leave it this color.Sir_Rat wrote:Musicnbikes...Man stretch it, rake it, cut the tabs n tank mounts n make a radical chopper. .....Just kidding!! Its a beautiful bike, tune it, ride it and maybe try and find original parts to replace any aftermarket parts. Nice bike. IMHO
The first thing that caught my eye was (what appears to be) pristine anodized pan covers.
That is an indication that it may be relatively un-molested.
(Or at least maintained by someone with reverence for the original hardware.)
That alone makes the machine enviable.
But I would ditch those fishtails in a heartbeat.
They might make a great mailbox post, if you weld them together just right..
