 Serial number on the left case well tell you. Looks good, but going to need a little work.

 :agree: Check the case. If he got it for free, he's in good shape regardless of how much work it needs!

He says it looks like everything is there. Plans to rebuild the motor and trans and clean it up and ride it. Said he almost had a heart attack and hasn't slept much for three nights...A buddy who bought the house sent him a pic and asked if he wanted this old bike...LOL!

Looks to be a 1940ish - Engine (VIN) number would be something like 41EL3541. Inline springer, tank badges, remnants of the snorkel air cleaner,  wheel driven police siren all indicate 1940-1946 production.
Ignorance is bliss, and accuracy expensive. How much of either can you afford?
