The hardtail was mated to the frame in a jig at The Factory Metal Works shop, so it is very straight. Jimmy fabricated the fender/mounts to the tail section, shimmed the rear wheel to align the chain run, and then built the rear wheel with the correct offset so that the center line of the tire would line up with the rib of the fender.

Just put in an automatic bid with your maximum that you are prepared to pay.
if you get outbid then someone wants it more than you.

Great looking bike. I wish some folks around here were into these cool old Brit bikes. I know nothing about them, but damn they are handsome. Around here if it aint a Street Glide with a 30" wheel and a set of apes, it ain't cool. Now everyone is riding around on bikes that look like everyone else's bike.

The forks are stock BSA as is the front wheel. That front fork / wheel combination began in the 1940`s, and was used thru 1968. The shrouds are vintage Wassell, after market parts made in England in the 60`s.
