In earlier posts I have wondered if any Flanders twins were ever produced. Well here is the only known example. A reader of my blog pointed me in the right direction. Thanks! I wish more was known about these V-twin bikes. This bike was originally owned by a gentleman from Oxford Mich. He held onto it until 1978. Oxford is about 2 miles from where I live! The bike cost $210 new and makes 7-9 hp. It uses a Schebler carb and Splitdorf magneto.
Just messing around with the Ducati. The seat is similar to what I want. I will make the tank work by moving the attachment points. The shocks are new. At first I thought this was a 1961 but after removing the front wheel I found the date code on the fork. It was built the 35th week of 1960. Every nut and bolt on this thing is fighting me! Someone took it apart many years ago and now much of the hardware is either not correct or in the wrong location.
