You have a mix of parts. The hummer went to swing arm rear suspension in 63 so the frame is 62 or earlier. The engine serial number clearly is a 1964 Scatt (BTH) but that only identifies the engine. There is no frame serial number so Harley just used the engine number for ID.|
Doubtfull on the price as it will not be an original anything.
I bought a fairly complete 62 Scatt this year for $2,000. Needed extensive restoration. Looks like it was stored outside for 25 or 30 years. Not sure I got my moneys worth but it has been great fun restoring. Most parts still out there.
I applied for a title in my state of Minnesota and it was approved. Some states will require a bond and issue a temporary title for 1 year. If an owner comes up with the original title your bond covers it. Around $250. You need a bill of sale listing the seller and sales price. Check your state DMV for their regulations.

This came up for sale in my market and I am very interested in it. He ias asking 1500 for it which seems steep. Says the engine turns but does not fire. He has it listed as a 1955 Harley Hummer but I do not believe that to be accurate. He sent me a picture of the serial number which is:
64 BTH 4016 which using the information this page would make it at 1964 scat? It looks like it might have been modded out, no tailight, headlight, looks pretty stripped.. I thought 55 hummers came without those things which makes me a bit confused on it.
Any thoughts or input? Thank you so much!!
