    Honest Charley's Speed Shop had one on display at the NSRA Nats around 4 or 5 years ago and offered them for sale in their store. The one on display was painted black and had a springer front end. If I recall, it was priced around $20K.

    Sorry, but I'd be filing this one with the " '55 Chev roadster" from yesterday.
    I think that some things are better left undone. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should.

    This line on the site made me laugh.

    WARNING: Riding motorcycles is dangerous and can result in accident, injury or death. Flathead motorcycles are not suitable or intended for all riders and conditions. Operators/owners assume all liability for safe operation and suitability of purpose.

    Wow, riding motorcycles is dangerous, and you can get injured . .

    What next?

    I'm hoping that eventually there will be enough disclaimers on everything that all disclaimers will be removed and automatically implied.

    Is that 42 a XA? Or just the front end? If so do you want to sell the XA Motor, We have one but the motor is in pieces. If you have a complete motor, I'm Intrested. We have a 42 with a flathead motor (harley) that has a holster for a thompson machine gun, which is pretty cool. Your bike should be real nice, post some pics when you get a chance.
