    Like I said, I had no worries. It was a second chance offer through Ebay, no one else could have gotten it unless I turned it down. But yes, I don't post things before I have them usually. Or at least I don't advertise that the bike is for sale....I act like it's mine and I'm just asking questions about it:p

    Couldn't tell if the green pins were visible on the tank?

    Congrats that's a treasure!

    I've only ever seen it on Colson...but perhaps it's other places that I don't realize

    That's actually the Boyd theater that was in Allentown on 9th st. That whole block, as you can see by the picture, was torn down to make way for PP&L building expansion
