This started to look good till I seen the numbers.I like this post he did which doesnt explain the bad vin.
This bike has had three owners. It has always lived is S.W. Michigan. The original owner purchased the bike new and owned it for 40 year. The second owner called her Wicked Ruby and owned her for 20 years. At one time, the second owner had dissasembled the bike to have it painted. While the frame was at the painters someone drove into the shop and crunched the original frame against the back wall. That is why the frame was replaced. The current owner has take great care of her and rides her regularly. I personally know both the second and third owners. This is just a cool old bike.
