Here's one for you, Al-my '55 Speedster shortly after restoration in Fairfax in 1982-14 coats of red lacquer and new everything! Sorry about the pic quality-it's an old photo. Wish I still had it! Pat


Goddamit!

The most beautiful machine I have seen on this site, bikes included.

Thanks very much, it took me 4 years to restore. The beauty of the Speedster was it's elegant simplicity and flowing lines. Pat
