Price reduced to $1,500

Additional Photos added on 02/11/18...

Engine#: 4-5500857
Frame#: 54 411 79605

Sold as-is on a bill of sale. I've been sitting on this 'nugget' for over a year now. A friend delivered the engine to Chicago Jerry during last year's York Swapmeet. Since then life has gotten in the way of moving forward with this project so I've decided to pass this one along to another like-minded enthusiast. The engine resides with Chicago Jerry who is/was planning on starting the re-build this spring so you can discuss any special build requests with him. The rest of the bike resides with me here in Gastonia, NC - 28056. Unfortunately I'll not be attending the York Swapmeet as originally planned this year but I will gladly assist with logistics to have the bike shipped to you. Stephen Markley (704) 860-9052

New Photos as of 02/11/18 (Current State):


Bike will be delivered as shown here with the box of parts and I'll even throw in a spare tank. Please no "tire kickers"...thank you!

Not a big deal but this is a 1975 model not 1974. Same as 1974.5 model but made in November which makes it next year model.

So, what does the price include? The bike with a rebuilt motor, or just the rolling frame and extra parts with the motor being an additional cost?

Hi Stephen;
What I think he and others may want to know, is the engine rebuilt? I'm assuming for the new asking price, the engine needs to be rebuilt yet. If you were closer to me, I think it may have found a home with me!
Good luck with the sale,
Dan McEntee

Good point Dan, thanks for posting. The engine needs to be re-built so the buyer will have to coordinate with Jerry on this. Jerry is aware that I'm selling the bike and is happy to work with the buyer regarding his/her preference for the engine build.

I've included my phone number in the listing and encourage anyone interested in the bike to give me a call with questions.

Thanks again-

-Stephen

I will be going to the White Lightning AHRMA event next month and can pick this bike up for someone. I'll be attending events in Louisiana, Illinois, Kentucky, Arkansas, Michigan, Alabama, and am planning a summer "Tour" this year of Pennsylvania, New York and down the East Coast. I can hold the bike and deliver later. I live very near Indianapolis.
