    For the Trailhorse contingent

    Thought I would share this one. I had a buddy pick this up for me tonight. Full suspension Horse. Appears to be a GTO 1500. Good resto candidate. I'll have it tomorrow with better pics then. 32029.jpeg32032.jpegTrail_Horse_2.jpg

    Very nice!!!! When you get it in your hands on it and have some time I would really love a measurement on the bulb itself and or any markings on it (bulb or housing) Still trying to nail down a a pretty close replacement headlight assembly. think I have found one that at least matches the shape and mount, but not sure if its the same diameter bulb.

    thank you, and Nice find!!!!!

    Here is a shot of the engine ID tag. Mid September of 69. Markus I will get your headlight info soon. The bulb is a GE. I'll check for markings on the assembly. I can see chrome underneath. I'll strip it and look for a maker. Also the large decal is still present on the bike, but painted over. I may try the hair dryer and duct tape trick to remove the paint.

    Excellent, no rush man. My GA bike has been sitting 3/4 of the way done for years.....and it will probably sit that way for a couple more



    thank you
