We got Jason's 65 finished and put about 300 miles on it, my dad is driving down to the Texas road run and delivering it this weekend. This bike is massive, I didn't try to ride it with the buddy seat on it, I am too short! Jason is a lot taller than me and will do just fine on it.
1965 didn't use a side cover on the battery, I think it looks nice with out it. The battery that we used is a champion battery and it is nice and black, some of the other modern batteries are clear or have a bunch of writing on them. The mufflers are new old stock and sound great. The tour pack is something that Jason supplied and it is really cool. It has an early latch on it and also a handle so you can Cary it with you
I am making good progress on the 55 too it should be done and running next week. This bike is phenomenal and I feel so lucky to get to work on such a nice pristine example of an original bike
