    Not quite a motorcycle. 1917 Merkel Motor wheel.
    Was a major pain to build. Now sits gathering dust

  5. Nice beemer. Love that fairing. 20 years ago my friend totaled his R60, I bought the pile and completely rebuilt it. A couple years ago I fabbed a subframe for a sidecar rig so I could ride with my family.[​IMG]

    I’ll be the guy on a green Kawasaki mule hauling parts out to people’s cars and trucks for them. My Dad and I are members of the host club.

    That one started out as an afterthought, I bought it in a package deal with the bike I REALLY wanted... which I still haven't finished. It started out looking like this.

    Here's what the bike I really wanted that day has looked like for way too many years. It started out looking a lot like the red bike above.

    And the one I'm building from parts I have left over from the first two singles.

    Boy, this was taken a long time ago. That kid is now a 21 year lifer in the Air Force and has six
    little ones of his own. That Bonneville was fun.

    I've always missed my Scout (post #1), so when a friend passed away this year, a friend I went swap meeting with while building his Scout, I bought it from the estate a month ago. Been on several rides, fun doing the tank shift suicide clutch again. 0928180837.jpg

    Some beautiful bikes here!
    This is an old CJ750 I built a few years back, using original BMW parts. Plunger frame, original trans mount hand / foot shift.
    With due regard for the OPs pre-'65 stipulation, I would like to include a few pics of my post-'65 Harley FLH to exhibit how a later shovelhead can be built on a reasonable budget to approximate the look of a panhead for those who've been otherwise priced out of a pan or knuckle.
    Until the early '80s, Harley big twins would readily accept many parts intended for much older bikes. In fact, most swingarm frame parts are a direct fit going back through '58 and many interchangeable mechanical parts go back even further than that.
    I see newer shovelheads in my local NJ Craigslist selling for only a few thousand dollars with pans, knuckles and solo flatheads starting at $10k.
    Screw what people say about AMF bikes. They're on par with anything before or since at a fraction of the price. Shovelheads imo, are the best kept secret of vintage bikes...I bought this FLH for the whopping sum of $3k as in the picture with the fairing and saddlebags
