History question

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have a 1962 series three that I found in the Bronx years ago.  I am doing a full restoration on it now and found the original paint was a white and blue which made me think maybe it has some NYPD history or NJ police.   What is easiest way to figure that out? 

Thanks.

Post lots of photos and look for signs of large number stickers etc. 

If I remember right the blue is a very specific color and will stand out as a police bike if it is one.

If it was an old police biike you would have remnants of the old numbers on the legshield, I had a project one, the legshield also had some holes in it where they had attached a small sheet metal box on the inside, to store the parking ticket book.

 

From here it just looks like a nice project, but more pictures would help.
