History
I paid $600.00 for this bike and brought it home in 7 cardboard boxes. It had been disassembled for approximately 20 years before I got my hands on it. I spent about 18 months sorting through the parts and putting it back together. See attached photo of the first incarnation.

After the frame broke twice in rapid succession, I decided to put it on a new frame and make a fully custom "60's Chopper" out of it. I spent another 1 1/2 years on that project and you can see the results.
