Last batch made January 1963, serial 102816, second owner, unrestored, all original except tires. First owner was Zachary Taylor Reynolds of Winston Salem, North Carolina. Zach had 32 bikes and 10 cars, featured in the April 1974 Cycle Magazine with a photo of this Manx in his otherwise very formal living room. Reynolds = tobacco.
