It's a very 'old' new bike, so maybe posting it here is legit. I'm constantly being asked what year my restored 'old' bike is, and I usually ask them to make a guess. Most think it's somewhere between 1950 and 1960. But if you want a brand new, slow, vibrating, 'old' single 500, this is a fun way to go, and with luck and a little care, it might not even blow up at an inconvenient moment. Time, and miles will tell, and I've only had it three weeks and 525 miles, but so far, so good.
