GTs58

I'm the Wiz, and nobody beats me!
Here's one I came across on Facebook. New owner D. McDonald picked it up Saturday 4-10-21. Pic of the serial # K56142 pending.

"It was said it was used during the war at the Port of Tampa during the war as a customs inspector vehicle. It has #2 painted (very nicely) on the front fender peak, and "CUST. INSP." on the back of the same fender, though sadly scratched mostly off."

Rims were painted black at some point and had one war tire. Rear tire is a US Chain 42, front is a Goodyear, both in 26"1.375".

Hopefully he'll pop in here and add more once he goes thru his NW.

Looks like blackout hubs and the short rear mud guard with single wire brace, no kickstand etc. Def Wartime. Nice.

Beautiful Form and function. The speed lines coming off of No. 2 are perfect

Great Wartime bike @Doodsie ! I’ll add it to the list. Very cool paint and blackout parts. Please post more pics if you clean it up.

Picked up one of these guys last weekend. It was used at the Port of Tampa during the war by a customs inspector. View attachment 1391440View attachment 1391441View attachment 1391442


Welcome to the Cabe Dean! Hopefully Miq's thread on these NW's has helped in answering any other questions you may have had. Please post your findings here when you pull the crank and I'll have my fingers crossed hoping there is a casting date so that we can get an idea of when these K serial pieces were produced. Have fun!
