I bought this bike 38 years ago when I was 16. I ruined the engine in 3 months. I rebuilt it at the time and drove it less than one mile and the head was shot. I didn’t know what I was doing. It say for 36 years in a thousand pieces in the basement of my families farmhouse in VT. In 2018 I found a restoration shop near me in Ohio and had it completely restored. I could’ve be happier.

Paint and exterior

I was going to have it repainted and the restorer urged me not to repaint because it was pretty good. Happy I didn’t.

Upholstery and interior

Original seat.
