I think it's an ideal companion bike for the "Evel Knievel" bike.

Wasn't the Nostalgia Cycle V twin built with a magazine? Seem to remember Super Cycle or another Easyriders style bike rag advertising something similar

NOCL but still had to look.
Not often you see a clean unmolested 1957 going so cheap.

In the words of the owner :

1957 badassery!! You find many if any of these classics for sale. Especially in this amazing condition!! Your chance to own a piece of history!!
I'm not 100% convinced on the engine number (I could be wrong) and I don't think the mirror was original equipment on these ?

Never knew about the Nostalgia Shovelhead, the one I remember used many parts from a small block Chevy. It was an expensive flop with plenty angry customers wanting money back
