    I'm writing up the history of this bike for a little article. I have documentation on the motor; it was sold on a bill of sale by Mr. Dale Walksler when his H-D dealership was in operation in Illinois. It was sold to a fellow named Paul Karen, who the oldtimer told me went by "Panhead Paul."

    Lo and behold, I found this thread: http://www.antiquemotorcycle.org/bbo...t-Rochester-NY

    Does anyone remember this man? I'd like to know more about him and maybe get in touch with any of his relatives who might be interested in seeing one of his bikes back on the road. I figured someone here who's closer to the area and a bit older than I am might know something about him.

    Twelve-page spread in Greasy Kulture. Guess we can call this one wrapped up.
