So a friend had renters and they flaked on him, bailed out.
He called me and told me there was a bike frame in the back yard and I should come and grab it.
Here is what I found.
So my first thought was to run the vin and see what it tells me, no luck, no boss on the steering neck or vin.
That tells me it's an early frame.
I think it was '69-70 when the started the steering neck vin.
So I'm looking it over and see a few weird things. the swing arm pivot holes look like they have a threded hole in the top for a set screw. I haven't seen that before.
And then there is the boss on the right of the seat post, it's stout, and I assume its for the battery ground, but again, a new one on me.
There is also Gussets behind the seat posts and at the back of the swingarm pivot, I assume those are artermarket, but it's got clean welds and the rest of the frame seems unmolested so I'm not sure.
I was thinking of building a touring trike out of it, but don't want to do anything untill i find out for sure what it is,if it is one of those 4 drop seat pan frames that the motor company made in 56 I'd hate to hack it up because I didn't know better,
Thanks for looking, hope you can help.
