  1. That was really interesting. Thanks for sharing it. I love seeing those old knucks…and it’s amazing the traits from it brought forward to my ’07 Springer. The chrome band around the gas tank, the patent sticker on the oil tank, the marker light on the front fender…and of course the springer front end itself…very cool. My absolute fave though is down at the bottom with the bike all restored and that pin-up girl sticker they put on the oil tank, “Change your luck, ride a Knuck!” I love it!

  2. Chessie, Did you and I ever stop at “Fat City” ? He and his wife had a couple of cool lookin HOT vintages. Pap
