    Default Well I did it - bought another one.

    I believe it is a 1923 by the number near the seatpost. I also got the transmission for it but nothing else. Came from a friend who got it out of a shed in southern Minnesota.

    Looks like a 23 rear fender to me. With that wide fork and front fender the engine should be a 74" and NOT a 61" unless you're just building a rider.
    Everything looks to be in really solid condition. Good score.

    Mark I was wondering about that wide frontend. I was thinking that maybe it was just a later front but everything looks so undisturbed. I do not see a restoration out of it but Cannonball did cross my mind. I would be looking for an engine if one was out there.

    In 1922 and 1923, the 74" used the wide fork and front fender without divots in the valence while the 61" used the earlier -16 rear leg and a wide fender with divots in the valences to fit the narrow fork.

    Yeah Steve it looks real solid. With any luck the frame won't need anywhere near the work my last Cannonball bike did.

    Mark This is a picture of what I have. I need everything else. Does the number on the frame correspond in any way to the serial number that would have been on the engine? Jerry
