A one owner bike, bought it from the son of the engineer who owned it . It sat in his basement for 15 years, tires melted into the concrete
What a beautiful, classic roadster! If there was ever a bike that deserved a leather Brooks, this is it.
I just noticed...My 51 Rudge has that same dull gray finish instead of polished chrome on the seat post as this bike. I'll have to watch for that from now on.
