    Thanks for the insight folks. I like some of the older Harleys and would be happy to find one of these:

    But, I expect I would need to do some parts searching to 'restore' one as most all have been customized. From the show 'Then Came Bonson'.

    Oh, for Pete's sake - anybody with one good eye in his head can clearly see that this bike has a big stock drum brake setup on the front wheel! :umph

    Yeah, where in the world would you get the dollar bill eyeball sticker???

    Dang, that Sporty always looked like such a big bike when I was a kid watching it on ( black and white ) TV.

    And riding my bicycle 50 miles in the snow to school - bababababa!!!

    well he asked where to get a sticker like that......so click what you want or dont want. But spam is defined as an unsolicited email/communication to sell you something. By definition asking a question and getting an answer makes it not spam. But ok.

    When I clicked the link there suddenly was a window telling me that because I have been looking at porn sites I needed to click the box to clean my computer.
    Porn on the internet?

    well its to ebay listings for eye of providence stickers (as is pretty obvious by looking at the link). But who knows you might be a prude and ebay might be too racy for you.

    Comparing these two bikes (not the girls):

    The lower appears to be is a customized (i.e. stripped down) version of the upper (at least the frame). From some reading, it seems these front drum brakes didn't work much and removing the internals, cable, and lever cleaned up the bike and probably lowered the weight a bit. It seems between 1958-1972 a better (but still not very good) front drum brake was used. I will admit I like the looks of the customized version (with a shovel head engine) a bit more than the stock panhead (maybe the rider makes a difference?) - but it's not night and day.
