    I'd say the original Candy Gold.

    I thought sure enough, by the time I got home from work tonight, he would have commented on my little joke here. I would NEVER really send this crap to someone for a resto.
    Amazingly, I do see a few, very few, reusable parts on it. Kinda looks like the rear wheel was tore out and the seat ripped off as it was being traumatized. Hope no one was actually hurt.

    I expected him to say...Given enough time and money, anything can be fixed but a broken heart.
    I'll bet this one would be a record breaker too...most time and money spent on a resto.

    Lol...most of the potentially useable parts I see there are INSIDE of the engine... 2 gears and a clutch basket.

    Oh yeah, I did too.

    Lol. I see a reusable oil checker.
    Not sure, because of the dead weeds, but it looks like half the swingarm is missing.lol

    I thought of the tank too, but the front of the tank might be smashed. It looks to me there was a tire on the front neck. The right bar looks to have been tore off. I see sign's of it being ran over by a vehicle at some time.

    Might be able to restore the tank bracket & clean the tank...then install a new bike assembly beneath them. Otherwise, there ain't enough Dr Guff's polish to shine this :poop:
