Swap Meet Finds...

Post by Prof » Mon Jun 17, 2013 10:55 pm

All sorts of things turn up at swap meets. Amongst the old worn out tools, car parts & trinkets, mundane & modern we bikers occasionally pick up some real treasures from yesteryear, sometimes at unbelievable prices...

Victor's find...
Victor was rewarded for his early morning rising a month ago at Pooraka with a real old school HD piece of memorabilia...

Prof's find...
The following week I found a real treasure. It won't get sold. If I can get a second one it will probably go on one of my choppers , other wise be something set up for customers to drool over...

Its called a Pawn Light and was made by Ron Finch in the 70's. It could be side mounted on either side of the bike. First time I have seen one in the flesh...
