    Just curious, where did you get the info that a bike with the P had a reverse transmission? Shouldn't a 49 have a rear fender with sargent stripes?

  1. Hello John. This is Stillman Small in Tennessee. Are you going to the New Smyrna Beach show ? I've lost your number. Mine is 615-830-5802. We'll be set up at spaces E-20-28 Thu Fri Sat. I thought maybe if you were coming you might bring an engine from Carl Olsen. Thank you my friend!
  2. Thanks Sarge, I'm not home right now but when I get some time I'll try to post some photos. Cameras and computers are not my strong suit. John
