It has the tall oil tank filler typical on the larger west coast tanks. As a result, the frame is the west coast model. The oil tanks are not interchangeable in the two frames. It also has west coast front fender, fender stays, and fender brackets. Those three items cannot be mixed with the east coast style parts...well without bending, cutting and reshaping them.

YES BOB GOODPASTER OF EXPERT CYCLE IN HOBART INDIANA IS A EXCELLENT RESOURCE. HE REBUILT THE ENGINE ON MY 66 SPITFIRE. THERE A NOW 3 GENERATIONS OF OF GOODPASTERS IN THE MOTORCYCLE WORLD. ALL THREE GENERATIONS WERE RACERS. BOB'S FATHER GOLDSTAR JOHNNY WORKED ON MY GOLDSTAR BACK IN THE MID-60'S. A VISIT TO HIS SHOWROOM WHERE HIS EXTENSIVE COLLECTION IS DISPLAYED IS A REAL TREAT.

I APOLOGIZE FOR THE USE OF CAPS. I CAN ONLY TYPE WITH MY RIGHT HAND SO USING THE SHIFT KEY IS BEYOND MY CAPABILITES.

The Devil is in the details.

Update on the '65 Cyclone Competition build. Mostly done with the frame and cycle parts with a few more bits to get. Currently workiing on the fuel tank and procurring the last of the needed engine parts before engine assembly.
