Nice bike cool, dare I say maybe a tad over restored :0
Would it have been that glistening with a 1936 paint job?
Great to read that He's riding the thing tho.
I would like to see it prior to the resto or hear the story like, if You google the O. Ray Courtney it just comes up with this one

When's somebody going to re-body a crotch rocket with some streamline moderne style?

I agree with some of the previous posts, I'd welcome a modern interpretation of this bike.

A beautiful form begs to be touched. Giggity!

I WANT to hate that, but the little kid in me is jumping up and down and I can't help but love "it".

But it's NOT a "motorcycle". I don't care if it has two wheels. It's "something else" and it's cool as shit. Reminds me of George Jetson or some 19th century's futurist would envision as "the future of Mamon transport".

Maybe it's an "aero-terawheeler".

I'd love to ride it.
