Very unusual knuck

A highly unusual knucklehead on ebay.
Check out that ignition system.
Dual remote bowl Delortos.
Crazy molding on the tank and fender.
WTF are in those chrome bezels on the tank?
Too bad its got one of the worst number jobs I've ever seen.

Ckassic earky 70s trailer queen... Those numbers stink!

Twin Dell'Ortos are quite impressive, how do you get your leg on h footrest without covering the intakes ?

Shame to see so many regional parts in a bike like that, really.....
Shoot, a man could have a good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff...

Numbers do smell and I wonder why the artist did not start with good numbers when his artwork is so cool. I really like the look for a bobbed chopper.

Re: Very unusual knuck

I don't know about US practice but many British custom bikes if that era had little or no legitimate documentation. This wasn't a great problem at the time, and many if these bikes were never registered anyway. I acquired my first 45 with no documents of any sort, it having been seized by the landlord if a college friend and sold to defray his rent arrears, and simply applied for a registration number at the DVLA counter, receiving one from a scrapped BSA there and then.
