History
My Grandfather bought this bike at the age of 71 in Oct. 2001 after my Grandmother passed (she wouldn't let him have a bike). It had 9*** miles on it. He had it all dressed up with a windshield, leather saddlebags and crome engine guard. He was 82 and had been battling lung cancer when he gave it to me in early April '12, two weeks later he passed. This bike is very sentimental to me so i'm definitely keeping it, however I am in the process of building it how I want. The name of the build is The "Pop-Sycle" kinda like Popsicle because I called him "Pop" and he loved frozen popsicles so I thought i'd incorporate those into the build. I will eventually have ("Pop-Sycle") hand painted onto the tank.
