and back again...

Well Chip Quinn from Phoenix helped me confirm that it is a different gas tank on the later version of this bike. In fact it's a completely different frame! Tweaking out on the little details made me miss the obvious. Too many of the same parts to be a different bike in my opinion. Musta been a good story behind the total redo. I found this feature of the early version last night in a 1971 issue of Motorcycle World Special Choppers.

  1. AARRGG! That tank on the first version and the seat on that bike is making me rethink the same on my own pre unit project! I dig the banana seat, but haven't been able to make anything look quite right on mine. Oh well, back to the drawing board! Thanks, Chip
