    Nice bike , the Slimline Panther was introduced in '66. It came with a painted fork and the tank underside was painted white. Perhaps your bike is really a Mark V Jaguar with a Panther chainguard. What is the Serial number ?

    I AGREE IT DOES COMPARE TO THE MK 4.......I HAVE ONE VERY SIMILAR IN ALL ASPECTS EXCEPT FOR THE ANIMAL ON THE HANDLEBARS...MINE IS BLUE AND WHITE, AND I BELIEVE IT IS ALSO A 1965 OR 66.....NICE RIDING BIKE...ALL THAT A PERSON NEEDS TO GET AROUND THE NEIGHBORHOOD ON A COOL SUMMER DAY......

    Very nice example! It's probably a legit Panther IMO. The serial number date does not always indicate the year of a bike. A late 65 SN very well could be on a 66 model and the springers were an option.
