    Looks like a mix of parts.tank should be a peanut style.this has Jaguar tank and rack.springer would be right for panther.value in my area 250-350.

    MA89039 serial number, something miss read? The Dec 65 numbers don't go that high.
    12/30/1965 ------------------- MA80373 ----------------- MA83412
    With a MA serial the bike would be a 1966 model so it looks like the bike was built up or refurbished by someone with different year parts. The 66 Panther had a Slimline tank and wire carrier etc.

    A '54 would have been a straightbar maybe?

    Yes, I think that was the last year for the ballooner Panther. Revived as the Panther II in '59.
