that fence looks familiar....I seen a place selling salvage bikes that had a fence in the background like that....if it's a salvage bike you should expect to need to so some work

Motorcycles Unlimited is off 1960

edit: great looking bike!

not all salvage bikes are bad ideas....could have just been layed over...insurance companies total bike's pretty easily. coulld have been just cosmetics... the bike amb rides is a salvage title and it runs just fine.

but Patrick seems like the man to ask around there..seems like a really nice guy.

like they said salvage doesn't mean it's junk, just means the insurance co didn't want to fix it and bought it from the owner so it automatically get's a salvage stamp
