that is a wonderful find! inspiring! those finds are still out there! the resale value is only a small fraction of the joy of bringing these rare gems to light. and to the proper forum where they are respected and admired for what they are. i would like to know what you finally decide to do with it. you have a resposibility on your hands that you probably didn't think you were gonna have! good luck! you should show it off at the wheelman site as well!
I love the pictures! museum quality find! Restoration would scare me! there is some irreversible damage that can happen if care and a lot of research is not done. please take your time and have patience. hope to follow this expedition with you. please keep sharing.
