are these R68's really that rare? that one got bid up to just shy of $40K and I don't think it met the reserve. And it is a tribute ISDT it isn't even genuine.

Less than 1500 R68 were built. The bike is desirable. IMHO a stock R68 would be would be more desirable, but that's just me. This particular bike doesn't interest me much other than as a photographic target. Too many things are just wrong. A friend pointed out some of the more obvious issues: why remove the air cleaner and add a large, low hanging oil pan to what is supposed to be an off road replica?

Isn't that an oil pan protector? may be wrong but it sure looks like an add-on sheetmetal item.......

Flug's pic, not Curvy's. Here's another angle:



The bike is part ISDT, part Rennsport, part whatever made the owner happy. See http://www.midamericaauctions.com/mo...desport-racer/

His father bought this thing new and he rode it as a child. He has now restored it but has never known what this Hook between the springers is. Anyone got an idea?

Read concept and uses... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harley-Davidson_Servi-Car

I have seen pictures of the hook-up but Google fails me tonight.
Have no idea of how that hook would be used.

I seem to remember that they were designed to be towed behind another vehicle. I have no idea how the towbar looked or worked. a service tech could drive a customers car back to the customer after it was repaired. towing the servicar. then unhook it and return back to the workshop.
