Very good link post John. ThanX

I really like his Crown conversion idea. Wonder what the cost would be on one of these? Like him, if you could find one with the engine rebuilt, you could really get down to the interior work right away.

Boy John, have you got me in trouble now. I was looking through a couple of Used Bus Sites when MarilynW walked in and took a look over my shoulder.

Her first comment was "Don't even THINK about it".

me too

that is exactly what my wife said when she saw me looking at this



she said "no more harleys"

but I said "but honey, it's such a nice color green"

she said "you already have one, and you have taken it apart four times and your still not done with it!"

then i said "so"

she said "what would you do with it any way?"

i replied "why, ride it of course"

she goes "i give up!"

then i'm thinking "ha! just wait til the bike show in davenport next year! yippie!"

When I was in 15 (1972), I bought one of those in a crate for.....$75. Found them in a warehouse in Beaumont, TX. The guy had 50 of them, crated and cosmo'ed. Sprayed it down with Varsol, made new plug wires and fuel hoses for it. Filled the tank with regular leaded. I went and got one of the big Dad's in the neighborhood. After he kicked the heck out of it about 6 times, it fired right up. I was not old enough to drive it. Heck, I could not even start it. Sold it for $300 a month later. Thought I was so smart.

How much is that one pictured?

are you sitting down?

that one was in a show, not for sale.

but in original condition they are around $10 to $12,000 now!

basket cases can be had for $6 to $7,000 assuming most of the parts are there and have some sort of a title.

could of had one in 1985 for $1,200, i chose my 55fl instead.

glad i did, because the price of antique big twins is through the roof too!

by best friend has started rebuilding a 1939 indian 4cyl, when finished it will be a $40k bike. he found it in a barn close to his house, still hasn't told me what he paid for it.

but i bet it wasn't cheap!
