1970 350SS

By Paul Brodie

Fifty bucks and a case of beer.  It even sounds like a good story.  It came from a friend of a friend and was never advertised.  The bike had been stored in a lumberyard shed in South Vancouver for years and was very rusted. It was complete except for the air cleaner and chain guard.

It had 5,100 original miles on it; the speedo cable was still intact. Cylinder compression was 150, and not only was the oil level full, it was brand new oil! The engine had never been apart. I was told it was a 1971 250 Sprint, but when I registered it, I learned it was a 1970 350 Sprint.  I restored it over the winter of 1996; it’s stock except for the exhaust, leather seat, throttle and levers.
