Thanks for the reminder to kick myself for NOT taking up a friend of mine (nicknamed Moondoggie the Ugly Pup) who offered me his '65 Pan for $500 back in the late '80s (even though I didn't have $500 at the time). He told me it was still in crates from when he wrecked it, but he had all the parts to restore it with it. MAN, I REALLY wish I had gotten it, NOW, after seeing THIS one!!

An absolute gem.
My 1st bike I built from boxes of parts, all there. All 3boxes cost me $600 back in 1969. I chopped it and threw the unused OEM parts away (not thinking). The bike was as '53 Panhead. I've had regrets ever since. Would love to have a second chance...
