    The guy who is getting the Black and Yellow rollfast has been bugging me for it since I purchased it. He's always been a fan of vintage bikes but never owned a guy's vintage bike before. He's always taking care me when he builds my motorcycles so it's time that I return the favor

    Not so sure that's orig paint. I believe that was owned by a local buddy of mine, fellow Caber as well. Been a few years since I saw it, so I might be wrong.

    One of my favorites has always been my Elgin, Murray built, bent tube, long tank, fenderover. I found the bike approx. 12 years ago, with an overwhelming amount of home paint. 1st pic is as it was when I found it. All original parts have been kept, so the bike can be returned to original if desired.
