    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.

    perhaps if you emailed Ness & Perowitz they will answer your question...
