I've just become the owner of a Pepper Red 1953 ST 165. I took a look at the engine ID # looks like 53 ST 2442 and the speedometer matches the pictures of ones found on the 53's. At some point my father-in-law acquired the bike and had it in one of his out buildings for many years. I've been told it was ridden as recently as a few years ago. He liked the year model because it was the same year he graduated from high school. I'll try an post pictures a little later. I'm looking forward to restoring the bike to near original condition over the next few years with the help and advise of club members. Thanks in advance for all the help.
