Bike came from thecabe.com and the tank I got off E-bay. There is a restored header tank bike on the net right now the guy is asking 5k for it. I think its a tad high. I'm thinking it wil be worth about half that when done. Also picked up a 1940 Colson flyer off the cabe and a prewar Huffman frame fork chain guard and bobed rear fender already painted. I plan on putting a 4 stroke in it with a SBP shift kit in it.
