    Hi all here are some pics after a quick once over with a soap pad and water. it need to be torn down compleatley and painter and rechromed but it is a good foundation for a restore.
    ok a little about this bike it is a 1962 jaguar 4 with s7 rims and a bendx 2 speed rear hub with 3 red stripes which is corect for this year.

    so do i restore it or put a motor on it Hummm?

    so to keep it short i knocked on the door and offerd the man of the house $20 for it. SHURE he said. he druge it out of the trash and put it in my trunk for me lol. he wanted $20 i guess and a tip.lol i gave him $20 no tip

    so dug through my spar parts and this what you see. o yaaa its going to get a 5hp briggs . i seen msrfans briggs bikes and i like.

    Thanks Don P

    Yes, I think it would be good to list the Jag on ebay. Let it find a home with someone to restore it. And let it finance the motor bike build. With decals and paint you can make the second one into a generation 2 Jaguar. What year is the second one?
