The Pentons are the reason for the inquiry.
The rear wheel paint looks real close to the original frame color, as I'm trying to restore them to their earlier days.
The Berkshire 100 I've had since '73. The Six Day 125 I picked up from a friend about 2yrs ago. I have been to Vintage M/C Days at Mid Ohio and met John and Jack Penton, cousin Dane Leimbach, and many more of the Penton riders from back in the day, along with the many members of the Penton Owners Group. I had team manager and rider Doug Wilford, the resident Sachs guru, rebuild my motor. He sent it back looking like new, so now I've been trying to get the rest of the bike to match it. Hopefully, they'll look like this:
'72 Penton Berkshire
'72 Penton Six Day
'78 75th Aniv Sportster (1st owner, sold '89)
'82 Honda cr250r
'04 K12Gt - KIA '09
