This is one of the nicest restoration on a panhead that I have seen in a long time. Lots of attention to detail were taken during the restoration. Fits and finishes are perfect, Plating is perfect, lots of the nuts and bolts are faced in the same directions. The Stewart Warner blue face speedometer is correct and was rebuilt by Reed at Texas Speedometer service The original 49 bars are included with the purchase Also there is a nice tandem buddy seat that comes with the bike. With just under 100 miles on this beautiful panhead, it is ready and sorted out for you to add to your collection, take it to shows and impress everyone as the color is a real attracter also I would not hesitate to jump on it and ride it across the country if you are looking for a fresh sorted out machine.
