    This 45 has a BSA transmission.. Stock rear hub flipped for left side chain… Old fire extinguisher for oil tank.. 6″ extended forks using old Ford radius rods.. The whole project including chrome and paint (this photo is of unfinished bike) all parts and cost of the bike was just a bit over $900 in 1969/70… And this included a rebuilt/balanced engine.
