My guess is that you're 100% correct.

Here's a crappy pic of the badges that came with it. Maybe tomorrow I'll go look up the numbers.



I'm still not sure what to do with it. I know how these things go. It all starts with wanting to hear it run. That'll involve cleaning/rebuilding the carbs, fuel system, getting a battery and re-wiring it. Once it's running, then I'll just HAVE have to take it for a spin. This means tires, brakes, controls, plates, title, ect. From this point, I might as well go ahead and re-paint, re-build, re-plate and re-chrome everything.

If I think it'll take 2 years and $2,000, it'll end up being be more like 4 years and $4,000.

Been there, done that (got the 3 wheeler to prove it!). I did this a couple years ago. http://s589.photobucket.com/albums/s...view=slideshow
