  2. Build a hybrid out of it and use it occasionally.

    The year/month of manufacture is molded into most of the plastic parts (usually a round clock-like manufacturing stamp)...

    Nice find! What’s something like this bring y’all recogn? Do they have status to bring more than a new 461?

    I’d modify it and put it to work!

    If you convert and use it, the AM (new OEM color the same) plastics for the HD filter style conversion do match fairly well. Not perfect, but darn close.

    Such a waste not to run it.

    Not sure I’d want to own one of these, that conundrum would eat at me the whole time I owned it, lol.

    Brad shared a photo of his 'collection'. He has lots of saws that look brand new up on a shelf. It all looks like a waste to me. I suppose people collect all sorts of things: to each his own. At least he is not collecting garbage or his poop.

    I’d port it and run the piss out of it ! Or sell it to someone else who would ! Why leave a gem like that sitting round gathering dust?

    Going back a number of years, I was looking at bikes specifically to park some investment $'s into and was offered a very good deal on a never uncrated '47 Indian Chief.
    I knew it was a good opportunity but had to decline as I didn't think I could handle just leaving it in that state...
