Worst Number Job Ever!?

Probably not, but this is a outstanding example ... Bad 1941 numbers on matched 1945 cases:

Given that you pretty much HAVE to throw away the left case, how much are the rest of the parts really worth? Bidding already over $5K.

Re: Worst Number Job Ever!?

I looked at what was supposed to be a 1936 VLH the other day. Boss was filed down perfectly flat, shiney flat, like milling machine flat, then the numbers were stamped in perfectly straight and spaced with number stamps that did not even resemble the factory stamps.

It was a complete, but rough bike, guy wanted $10,000 for it. The top end didn't seem right either, but I'm no an expert on those bikes. to my eyes it had a pre-33 top end. I think the whole thing was cobbled together from parts.
