This was the very rare "Retro Special" for 1967

Comes with a letter of authentication from Lyndon B. Johnson.

(Elvis has one just like it)

I'm not that fussed about anything built after 1974 but it actually looks like a nice bike. With such low mileage and the extra;s thrown in I', sure someone will be tempted.

I really like the brake pedal 4" higher than the foot peg.

You get better mileage that way.......
