I am thinking it would have been either a Scat or Pacer 1963-65 or 66.I
just got a 62 Scat...it was the last year with the solid frame.
----- ORIGINAL MESSAGE FOLLOWS -----
When I was in college in the early 1970s that was labeled as a Harley
Davidson - Made in Austria.
It had a hinged frame... pretty much just behind the foot pegs. It did have
large springs between two parts of the hinged frame.
I believe it had a 175cc 2 stroke motor.
I drove it all around Chicago for a couple of years.
The problem was that if you hit a hump ... like a railroad track.... too hard,
the hinged frame would flex TOO MUCH and the CHAIN would BREAK!
I drove it until I could no longer find the chain repair links!
Does anybody know what that bike was?
