A collectibles house in Arizona who I'd spoken with a year ago came full circle. I'd actually asked if they authenticated items since I was bidding on Ebay for one. They gave me good advice , checked the one I was bidding (it wasn't their auction and they gave it a thumbs up). I got sniped and lost it.

I asked them to keep an eye out and they said yes, because they had a mint copy only and it was out of the range I gave them. I asked for pics anyway, fell in love, and bought it! Ironically selling my DT Ben gave me the money. Had I not sold it, couldn't have made it happen.

Anyways off to the framer this weekend!!

Congratulations John - great story which proves persistence does pay off in the end. A lovely piece of American history.

Congrats John!

I am also pleased to hear that there are still people around (especially in professionnal shops) providing gracious help and advice (like in this forum lol! )

The Vincent black shadow is a very nice bike I would love one of them, My dad used to have one of these but it was long before I was born, he also had the Norton Commando but he put that under the front of a bus and wrote it of and very nearly himself along with it.
I miss not having a motorbike I might try and find myself one for next summer.

Thats cool ! Guess our dads would have had to rumble , my dad had a vespa GS150 haha . Yeah my friend has a Vincent comet , but that's NFS .

I think when I do pull the trigger on a Commando , I am not buying a bike in a box like I did with my Bonnevilles , Bought one with a good engine and some usable stuff , then found a rolling chassis , but still had to buy this and that and even though most of the stuff is avalible just been alot more than I wanted to do to get it together .
