That trumpet is one of my faves,It was built in the sixties by Mike Vils as a Street/show bike. It was featured twice in cycle guide in the late sixties ,the second time was when that hand fabbed tank got added. It was also featured in street chopper in the mid 70s.And now I find that it was in an 80s mag too ! a sure testamony to the guy knowing how to build a class bike.

Yep, Supercycle October '81...I was right on the "no bondo" deal but the selling price was not $ 4.500 but $ 2500...WTF !! :eek:
This is one nice trumpet, check out handlebar & extended Vincent girder..
