Look hell-for-stout... Made for lots of nitro?

No answer, but a bump to keep 'er up top 'til one of the greybeards chimes in with the answer...

^^^while I was typing - an answer.

If its Hall-Scott, my buddy spike owns the company and all the old stuff.

But that's the stuff from old fire trucks.

His first name escapes me but he was from Mulvane, KS. The guy I always dealt with was Paul Raberding from Harper KS, he waqs the sales, ordering guy The last set I got from them was in 1994 or so. Shit now I remeber his first name was Scott, he is into old bikes now, he has a whole pile of the old stuff.

Long story short about 30 yrs. ago I worked for a ranch in Medicine Lodge KS. just west of of Harper KS any way I was in the bunk house with a Indian kid that was a full blown greasy biker a good guy and a damn good cowboy believe it or not. Any way all he had was a old shovel for transportation and it was all ways in pieces so I would have to take him to town which was Harper KS . about 30 miles away and 10 miles of that was dirt road . Any way i always took him to his biker buddy's shop . I just wounder if this is the same dude . Just brought back some memories
