    Really need cash for an upcoming vacation and already have too many toys that my garage is filled. Only reason I’m selling this beauty.

    I was hoping you would see it. I brought it down to the pavilions a couple times- didn’t ever see you.

    I have bill of sale, back story on this one is it was used for mail service at Luke AFB back in the day. The guy I got it from found it there all beat up with no engine and rebuilt it. He died and his brother was in charge of his assets and sold it to me.

    Great looking Simplex. I expect its considerably faster with the modern 212cc engine.

    Yes it does 40’s with just the single speed belt drive. It will easily do 50’s with the torque converter. And the tires are dot rated for like 90 I believe. Tires still have the mold release on them.

    Really like this bike. My brother has one needing an engine and a fair amount of other work. Your's looks ready to ride and has just the right amount of patina. Good luck on the sale.

    My new barn find. Early 50s servi cycle with 1750 original miles. Don't believe is original black but indicates it was red. Complete bike save the crash bars and foot plates. Bought it to get running and enjoy.
