So if everything goes to plan I might be picking up something I've dreamed of owning and never thought I'd own or be able to afford without significant sacrifice in the financial department. Not gonna say what it is just yet just that it's of holy grail status and I'm getting it for a song. It will need some restoration and a few hard to find parts but it will be worth it to cross this off my list.

This bike deal is keeping me awake I can't sleep. It's literally 3am in the morning. Am I obsessed?

Ok so I won't reveal what the bike is till I own it but I'll give a hint if you want to really know you can search and find out. On November 9th 2011 I first saw one and made a post about it asking if it was real or someone's creation. I have been searching for an affordable one ever since.

Good things come to those who wait? :grin:

Got my fingers crossed for you.

I spent three months trying to make a deal with a San Fran guy over CL before I threw in the towel. About three months after that he contacted me out of the blue and accepted my 'final offer'. Done deal...long and frustrating...but done deal none the less.

@RustyGold It paid off!!! I finally just laid it out. Lady was asking $100. I offered $150 if she'd deliver it. After yesterday getting stood up I made an offer to really get her attention and said if she delivered it to me I'd pay double!

So here's my $200 project!

Woohoo!

Sweet muscle bike project!
Thanks! I can't wait to tear into this neglected beast. Already ordered a set of date code correct 1968 cranks for it. Does anyone know if a full size chain guard will fit the mini twin?
