    Thanks, I was told it was built by "Jake the Weasel", an associate of George Barris.
    I asked Joji Barris, his daughter and she did not remember the name but said it could be before her time.
    Would love to have seen it "finished".
    The fenders are a bit like early Triumph fenders but even more filled out. May be an aftermarket part or a one-off.

    Now that got some cool stuff. Is there a frame number on that front section? Looks like a 1970 piece as the front engine plates bolt on. Are the fenders fiberglass - looks like it from the side hole near the license plate mount. Neat the way that chain guard is integrated in there. That front fender is reminiscent of a '63 6T Thunderbird:

    Looks like those are bolt on wheel covers...I've seen that style of bolt on hardtail before, the way the tubes join to the axle plate is rather unique.
    Guessing a toolbox bolted onto the hardtail like this one from a 1940-'57 Big Twin:

    What year is the engine? Got the rest of the parts to rebuild it?

    It's a cool odd duck and Triumph unit twin engine parts are inexpensive.

    The big question with that bodywork would be what to paint it.
