Oren. Ultimately it's up to you, but as a daily rider of my 65 pacer (all
original paint and dings and dust) I say leave as she is. It's her history.
Anybody can restore and make her like new, but she'll only be original
once.

Congrats on the sweet bike.

I had planned on tearing it down and painting it. The frame particularly
could use it. After having a number of older Harley guys ooh and ah over
it though and tell me leave it alone, i'm unsure what to do? What's your
opinion?

Thanks for your response. Oren.

Oren,

Your Pacer looks like it's all original. Nice original - and good running -
bikes are getting harder to find every day.

I drove 1550 miles to Louisville Kentucky from Cortez Colo for this sweet
little survivor, showing 1180 miles. The owner Dudley Bottoms is a really
straight up man and it is just as he described, and a really sweet runner.
My last hummer was a 49 in 1959, and very slow by comparison. I've had
lots of Harleys in between, but have already enjoyed this one more than
all the tweeners combined.
