Yay! Seems like we might have some more Pacers come out of the woodworks. The closest I've seen in person, to mine, was a Scat at the Barber Museum this past year at the vintage festival.

I too have an original 1964 Pacer. BT. Only the secound one i've ever seen in person. Mine is registered here in Az.

The picture above was taken by my grandmother in her front yard in Jan 1965 of my two uncles sitting on their "new" motorcycle. Below is me (candid as I was, trying to make some mechanical adjustments). It is pretty much 90% original, except my uncle decided to take a rattle can to the gas tank because he didn't like the white panel. (I would like to have that professionally restored.) And the chain guard turned up missing over the years. Anything I had to replace, I kept all original parts, down to every nut and bolt. It's not been re-painted or re-chromed, it just took a bit of polishing. It is a 64BT 2707.

Well the Pacer I have is a single owner bike that has been in the family since it was bought new. Before my uncle passed away, he gave it to me. I rolled it out of the barn he had stored it in since the 70's, and just recently restored it (about 90%). It is a BT model, and since I can't seem to find any updated numbers of what is in existence, I honestly couldn't prove error or not, because I don't know if it is a special model. I have it tagged/registered in GA, I have been in touch with the AMCA, but as far as being registered with any particular club or organization, no. I just recently got her running this past Oct. I searched your website to try to become a member quite a while ago, but then found out it was limited to online now.

Holly, Is your Pacer "registered" or does yours prove the error in the 7? This is only a question. I saw one last summer, unregistered, but ridden often, he didn't know about the club here.

There is a website claiming this organization verified that their 1964 Pacer was only 1 out of 7 in existence. Not that I wouldn't believe it, I just can't find any proof to the claims, and I try to do research before believing what someone may say. I'm assuming it's a BTU model, not a BT? Just trying to figure out if 600 BT models were made, and 50 BTU models were made, why would the advertiser selling the motorcycle not specify and provide such a limited amount of details to authenticate its rarity?

The additional reason I'm asking is because I have a 64 Pacer, so I'm trying to figure out why there have only been 7 supposedly documented still in existence of his particular motorcycle.
