Oh hell yes Patrick!!! That thing looks like it skipped the last 35 years and just came off the line.

 

Are those tires 2.50? They look like what I ran on the third wheel of my hack.

 

That thing is all about heavy duty and built to last.

 

Awsome find.

Wow!

 

While I was busy making mods to my 74 stingray those (and Yamahas) came out and changed my perception of bikes. Stingrays instantly became obsolete.

 

Incredible condition down to the original S and W shock.

This guy at the source came up to me and asked me what a bike was worth. He showed me a picture of the Gurney mono-shock. He told me that it was at the cypress swap meet. I told him it's worth good money. He quickly ran to his car and tried to buy it. Right when he left Patrick showed up with the Gurney. I will not say prices on here It's up to Patrick if he wants to. I am so glad Patrick got it instead of the other guy. Not that he was a bad guy, he just had no clue of the soul that bike has. I was being too honest with the guy and told him that he could get good money for it.
