There are so many things done to this bike and that are "one-off's" not another one like her (the "jenny" on oil tank is just a sticker so it can be removed easily). This bike has been meticulously gone through and built as close to a "period style" short chop from late 60's early 70's. Most add on parts were sourced from antique shops, r vintage parts from shops. Buyer will be responsible for shipping, can pack and crate/pallet if needed, ut will NOT be responsible for transport. Local buyers come on by and take a look. I will take any additional pictures/videos that you might want. Any questions, eel free to ask. I have a digital workshop manual and complete build pics to include any/all custom work. Thanks for looking and good luck.
