    Here's a pic of the Road King I sold last year I'm now riding a soft tail that I got in Cali. and rode back to Ohio in four days.

    The sears bike looks like a cool project, but where are you getting parts?
    I had a 71 Bonneville and it took some time to find suppliers for parts.
    Keep us updated on the project I'm interested in it.

    Those Sears bikes have got to be the coolest bikes I've ever seen! Please keep us updated on the resto! Who built them for Sears? I've never even heard of them. They sort of have a British look to them, don't they?
    They were made by a few European companies, but mainly by Puch. They were ordered from the catalog just like a stove or anything else from Sears. The black thing on the Headlight is actually the key. Oil injected 2 strokes are pretty cool especially a twingle style motor.

    They never sold very well because when they came out so did the Hondas of the same size and for another $150 the Honda was way faster. The Sears Allstate sold for around 150-200 brand new from the catalog. Another cool thing is even if the bike was made in 1970 but did not sell until 1973 it was titled as a 1973 or 1974 etc. They also were not perfect from the factory so the resto is a bit of a pain to be restored to factory specs.

    mine are in about as many pieces as when they came in the box. Well except for that dang speedo cable that wont come loose. Slow and steady will win the race, I may be finished by the time I am 50. Gives me another 22 years and a few days to complete them.

    05 Sportster 1200 XL, my first real bike. I rode rockets prior but enjoy this sooo much more. bought in 05/2010 and might save up and get a better HD or sell and get a truck. I need a bike though and this one is all mine!

    Keep in mind I'm SHORT, so my selection is limited and I only started riding about a year and half ago...Honda Shadow 650...got it used and for a great price!

    And at the time the only helmet I had was the one I used when riding ATVs...
