This bike was wonderful. It fit so well. The ride was very comfortable. VonDutch
was a master builder and made the bike to fit the rider. The bike traveled over the
roadway smoothly and gracefully. The bike was Von Dutch all the way. I owned this bike in 1976.
I owned the Triley Davidrumph and had the same problem with the rod. One messed
up and I repaired it. The motor then ran fine. The bike fit the contour of my body so
nicely and the chopper glided over the road especially going north on Scottsdale road
in the slightly hilly sections. The Von Dutch tag as you call it is extremely important
as these are no linger available straight from the Master “Von Dutch”. He was a wizard
when it came to making things. He was the greatest. Von Dutch is still alive! Check out
