Tonight after literally 2 years of searching and another 8 hours online tonight I think I found my Dad's 59 Sporty for sale. The ad says it is in Benson, MN and only has an email address. If anyone knows Kyle Reinke fron Benson or Danvers Minnesota I could really use your help getting in touch with him. The bike has been changed a little but not a lot. I called my Dad and showed him the ad tonight. I think his heart stopped. He could not even form a complete sentence for a while. Here are the pictures....you be the judge
Here is how I know it is the same bike.
1. Its listed as a 1959
2. Still has the same front end, head light, and invader mag
3. The rear shock has a gold cap on the top of the shock
4. The sissy bar is the same trident as original
5. The neck has the same gusset
6. The frame is the same purple, orange, maroon color. It looks different in all lights
7. The tank and oil bag are different color but still horseshoe and the peanut tank
8. My dad painted the fins on the jugs a purple maroon orange color before he sold it, you can still see it in the pic
CASH REWARD IF ANYONE CAN HELP ME GET THIS BIKE!!!
UPDATE: FOUND THIS ON CRAIGSLIST AS OF OCTOBER 23RD.
CHOPPER GODS BE WITH ME ON THIS ONE....PLEASE
