I was at the Long Beach motorcycle swap this sunday,and I managed to pick this out of a pile of parts.I'm pretty sure it's the real deal.the signature looks right on.I believe it says Encino under the signature.if I'm not mistaken,he was working out of there in the mid 50's,early 60's good sources say it's the real deal..."VON DUTCH"
before I gently cleaned it.
after.the colors are still very bright.you can see light checking in the lacquer.
looks like I have to build a bagger now!!
