F&S "J" and CCM "G" date codes confirm that she was born in 66.

This one nut wouldn't come off. the bearings are intact, cages in good shape. We'll see how they look after I clean them up, hopefully I can use them.

Let's see a FREAK mock-up of Sweet Marie. Call her Sweet Marie's evil twin sister, "FREAK Marie". DO IT!

Marie, Ingola, and Notorious RBT are speaking the same language. Maybe I should listen.
