I am trying to figure out what may be missing on this barn find 1969 Iverson Drag Stripper.

What I know: The seat and sissy bar are gone. Brake handle for front hub brake is gone.

Would this have originally been either a 3-speed or 5-speed? There appears to be witness marks on the top bar where the gear shifter would have been, and the rear forks appear to be slightly pulled in as if the current hub is too narrow. The current rear hub is a coaster brake BENDIX 70 Made in Mexico.

Thank you, Keith

Looks like you need to enter the soon to be started muscle bike buildoff :113:

I wonder what the fork extensions were originally off?
They had an "H" on them, so I'm guessing a Huffy. That had been cut off and simply slid over / press fit onto the Drag Stripper's forks. A little convincing with a hammer and a chisel got them right off.

the Bendix 70 is a later hub which i believe goes on later muscle bikes.
