    Found this '70 Speedster last year at our local police auction and in sad shape. Repaired it enough to ride for a while but then decided to restore it. I've always had a soft spot for the camel hump frames and wanted to bring this one back. The rear fender was beyond repair so ended up having to shorten it which gave it a hot rod look. Added the shifter, flamed seat and truss rods to continue the hot rod theme. I think it came out pretty cool! If interested I have it listed in the classifieds. Thanks for looking.
