We acquired this bike 2 years ago in about 80% complete. It was originally built in the late 70's by Bob Rakestraw who custom narrowed the tanks and hid the fill caps under the dash. It took about 6 months to acquire the missing parts and mechanically restore it to the running and rideable condition it is in now. Since then. we have put about 1500 riding miles on it without any issues. It's very fun to ride and cruises 70mph no problem. Gets a lot of attention and was recently featured in Dice magazine issue 59. New parts include firestone tires new wheel bearings. brake shoes and drive chain. New cycle electric 12 volt solid state generator with built in regulator. New clutch. New battery. reusable flo oil filter. One off sand cast tail light with led. vintage bates seat. roth bird deflector. Hand made stainless sissy bar. Harley FLH front end 2" over length with custom octagon shaved from fork legs done in the 70's. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me 530-315-0423. Thanks Ian
