got a mail off fellow shark puncher nick this afternoon
rode with him down into mexico on this on a non edr gap year type jolly. super cool bike that I'd have if it was this side of the pond, anyhows... anyone reading this in the us get in touch with nick and buy a piece of history
It was basically built from a stock bike - matching cases, proper trans, original swingarm frame with a pan hardtail welded on, stock '61 rear brake, stock '61 dual point ignition, oil tank, stock controls chromed, etc. The chopper parts on it are all mid 70s aftermarket - bars, steel trees, spool, seat, Branch/Mikuni carb conversion. I replaced all the soft parts, brakes, and some gaskets. Featured in Dice issue #26. It's a good runner and has been ridden out to Las Vegas, CA and Mexico. No breakdowns to speak of. It sat in a garage from '82 to '08.
he has piles of old info from it's original days
