Finally riding a big boys bike
I don't have a lot of info, so I apologize for that. I'm interested in a bike that's pretty rough but don't know a fair ballpark figure to offer. It looks like it's a prewar Shelby? bicycle I'm waiting to hear back about the serial so I don't know if it's a J or H. The motor appears to be missing the coil, coil cover, points cover, exhaust manifold, exhaust, carb and filter, clutch/ intermediate pulley, pulley/belt cover but it supposedly turns by hand. The gas tank looks OK on the outside, it's the silver tank with the decals, not embossed. I know that nice restored examples are bringing pretty good money these days, but what something like this? I was thinking about offering $400-$500, would that be resonable?
