I like the upscale restaurant/lounge part!

Not my field, don't know enough about OHV motors to comment.
However: "may have been re-stamped" = "arrest me, this is a fake title".
If the title is to a VIN that he admits doesn't belong on the motor: what are you buying? A title without a bike = felony. A bike without a title = junk.

Exactly! "Caveat emptor" is alive and well (let the buyer beware). G

It sounds a little fishey. It would only be worth junk unless he had the paper work to prove what has been done to the bike. Other wise he has no way to prove it's authenticity. Shall we start the bidding at 25 cents! Do I hear 25 cents??????

After reading the description of the bike, I would have to say the owner isnt trying to decieve anyone on the authenticity of machine. I agree the bike has very few origonal 36 parts on it. Even the title issues can be traced to replacement cases stamped at the factory. I have a friend that is in possession of a set of 37 E cases that are long ribbed 1940 and later cases but have 37 E 17XX serial # and matching 37 belly numbers. And an origanal title. I think it was fairly common for the weak short rib cases to have failed and been replaced by later casting. The bike is overpriced at 25,000.
