    You’re a nice guy that inadvertently communicates in a manner easily construed as negative. I’m just not that nice.

    I really dig that dual light setup. Can we get a shot or two of how it looks from above and/or the riders perspective?

    I keep coming back to look at this bike. It's so unique! Thank you for the various angle photos. You're fortunate to have this bike in your collection.

    This bike has to be the best find of the year for sure! My favorite anyway.

    I must have been asleep but just realized this bike is probably either a '40 but more likely a '41. The reasons I think this is that the spring fork, badge, and tank graphics are all indicative of a '41 model. I know the 26X was released in '39 with a 'pencil' fork but don't know that I've seen a Speedster with the pencil fork. Thoughts? V/r Shawn
