Aussie barn find: all-original '47

"Hi Guy, thought you may be interested to see what I found in Sydney. And yes, there is a '47 knuckle engine and all the other big and little bits to sit in it. All original '47 (apart from the panhead seat and the genuine Flanders bars), every original piece is with it. I sealed the deal today. Looks like I've got some work ahead of me. Love your mag, keep up the good work.
Dan, Sydney Aus."

That's such a stroke of luck they'll have to invent a new word to describe just how lucky it was.

can we please hear more stories about people who muck up the exchange rate and spend £50,000 on a fresh barn from nigeria that arrives two years later but turns out to be a dirty softail with doctored numbers, plastic pistons and reproduction paint? my envy glands are running low.

Not a lot of luck. I've been looking at that bike at least once a week for the past year.
