I don't get the "trade for something cool" part. Who would trade their KR for that? I cant think of too much that is cooler.

Re: The 1960 Stroker Drag Bike.

While I do think the bike is what he purports t to be I have to be a little suspicious of the bidding. I am NOT saying there is anything |wrong" about it but ....

When I see a LOT of bids going up ib small amounts and the bidder details kept private I wil NOT type the word "shill" here but I might be thinking it.

Caveat emptor.

I was Ga.But ended up buying a 79 with mags. It was only $1200, so cheap enough for me to do new spoked wheels if I want to.
Got it from InlineFbabrication. Pretty good guys to do business with.
I'd happily buy another bike from them.

"...restoration was extremely meticulous and completely thorough..."

Apparently they didn't have a factory original '69 CH for comparison. I do like a good story though.
