im pretty satisfied with the fender that craig made me combined with the trim strip i made for it out of aluminum. i also enjoy how my taillight came out since its a combination of schwinn headlight/ford taillight.

not rare factory or speed parts but custom - therefore somewhat rare (although half the folks on here are running one of craigs bitchin fenders)

One-off handmade CAD cut 5 spring billet Aluminum clutch from Patriot Racing in Oklahoma, used on my stroker shovel as a test clutch before putting one on the drag bike, was told to keep it.. no pics, and currently hiding inside of a primary, but one day to be shown off with open belt primary drive. oh, and an original HD glass tombstone taillight lens.

Up until a week ago I had a really cool old Ron Finch springer and my semi hard to find Routt 800 big bore kit for my Triumph, but alas, they're gone...... lackluster

Some NOS goodies I've been hoarding. A pair of velocity stacks for 900 series Amals, a Wassell float bowl extention for a monoblock, a chopper oil tank with a battery box from Midwest (not sure who made it) an MCM quick throttle for the 15/16th end of a 1" Pre Unit Triumph handlebar. And the Finch chain guard (bought it from him personally) isn't new, but cool.

I've got a thing for lights, too. My favorite is the old sol accetelene light in the middle. Bought it for $1 at a yard sale.

One more. It's been seen here before. An AEE/Moon oil tank, and a pair of cast pan rocker covers like I've never seen before or since.

I have a Pre-Unit '53 or earlier (for original rigid frame) rear hard tail section that is a factory race piece.

It is 3" longer than a stock one... and is about 2" lower.

It has stock part numbers on the lugs... and NO kick stand mount or mount for ANYTHING like the tool kit or???

Here is a picture of it mocked up with a swing arm front frame... to think I was gonna cut it up at one time to fit that frame and put a unit motor in it! ARG!

I took it to Rabers... and they had never seen one... only read about them. I bought it out of Chicago YEARS ago...

It's for sale... PM me if interested...

I don't know how rare this rotor cover is, but I sold it with the bike and now I can't find another one.

Here's my matching a.r.e. points cover

These are my early Norton girder forks. They're in great shape and were hung from some Canadian dude's rafters for over 50 years. The clamps are old brass Flanders items. Don't worry- I already ditched the wheel.

Here is my fav part. I posted them in the past but they are just soooo cool. They are cast aluminum from I believe a Henderson. Need to find something to put them on. They will look bad ass polished.
