I have to give thanks to the guy I got it from on Chop Cult. I won't mention his name, but he put it on there, as a "pick-up" no-shipping type deal. I was the first to say I would come pick it up, and he held true to his promise to hold it until I could get out there late tonight. He was offered double the price by some of the jackals on there, but his integrity shined through, and for that I salute him. Not many people that stay true to their word anymore, especially when faced with money.
I'm not so much into the name or brand....Bates, AEE, Cheetah, Aris, Wassell, Anderson's, Tampax, Guess Jeans...etc. I just like cool old parts, and a bitchin' springer was part of my vision for this bike.
