I have been offered a 1937 model U, which have not run since 1997. The owner claims its a kind of rarety as it has a single downtube frame.
So im questioning if this indeed a special bike, or just a Model U in a single dowtube frame. (And what is the story about change between single and double downtubes.)
And then the question is if this model U is worth almost 15.000 USD when I havent heard the engine. (Its police gray)
He claims that if I want to buy it, he will garantee that he can fire it up for me, but for the moment its in a display room, and have been there for quite some while.
The original owner who sold it to the dealer came with the traditional "If It doesnt start on the first kick its for free - otherwise its for my price, and apparently he bourght it"
