A smart old fart has guessed that it was built by Dave Perowitz. He's prolly right.

I thought the engraving & gold leaf pointed to Ness, but it's not drag bikey enough like his early stuff.

Maybe Perowitz painted Ness's bikes too? Dunno.

Thanks!

I remember it being in Easyrider. I got about 200 old issues from the early 70's to 90's but I don't have them anymore.

I emailed a friend that works for the Nesses & 1 to Perewitz . I'll post the answer(s) if I get them.
