1955 Panhead?

Can anyone tell me if this front end is original from this pic? Is this a '55? I'm going to look at it in person on Monday and am trying to get as much information on it as possible before I possibly make an offer. Any help is appreciated.

from what I can see the fender and the wheel are definetly NOT original '55 stuff, the forks are most likely from the same donor bike as the rest of the front end.

i agree with mike. the front end is something else.

also the rear fender and the tanks are not '55.
