      Some FOOL restored what looked to be an original paint bike and sidecar rig that was in absolutely exceptional condition. The restoration destroyed a piece of motorcycle history and cut the value in half.
      Sad!

        the restoration isn't even close to accurately done. it wouldn't make the 85 point minimum for amca judging.
        additionally, it's starting bid is at least double it's actual value on a really good day.

          Gee, i kinda remember a certain club recommending that members restore their old worn out unrestored motorcycles. And...a lot of them did just that!

            Dear All, here's a paragraph from our Judging Handbook, posted on the AMCA Website for at least the last ten years:

            A Final Word. The AMCA judging system emphasizes the importance of keeping unrestored motorcycles as such. These are truly the rare and priceless jewels of any collector, for they maintain and show with clarity and without any doubt, the true picture. When these all important motorcycles are sacrificed unnecessarily to restoration, we have experienced a tragic loss. Therefore, the AMCA strongly encourages the preservation and judging of unrestored condition motorcycles.

                  No kidding. I remember back around '86 or '87 being at the Omaha meet Howard Wagner telling me my late model '36 Indian 4 didn't win anything because it was "too plain," i.e., had cadmium plating where it was to supposed to and "not enough chrome." That 4 was a spot on accurate restoration.

                    Too funny, Cotten! A lot of relatively complete o.p. bikes "bit the dust" in the 60's and 70's... Today, a lot of us are building bikes out of parts the progenitors of the AMCA would have not considered using. And, some still good parts at that.

                      Funny & strange that some Bike Week vendors used to ditch perfectly decent parts in the dumpsters because of their recent scores, and no extra room. In the late 70's, i remember finding not one, but two slightly damaged, but definitely easily repairable 'Glide' Boat tails w/inner fender~~just to mention a few countless instances, way before Motorsickle's were status symbols, fashionable art & collectables.

                        The late Peter Heinz who was AMCA Chief Judge at the time (30 years ago or so) suggested in the AMCA newsleter that if your original paint bike wasn't perfect that it needed to be restored. I personally wrote him a letter on that one statement.

                          When I bought out the local HD dealer after he quit business I ended up with 18 new takeoff Superglide and Sportster boat tails. About had to give them away.

                            Yes sir! A helluva lot of Harley-Davidson dealers upon customers requests, ripped-off those boat~tails and chucked them. They replaced them with a stock steel rear fender. Those B-T's certainly redeemed themselves in the 1990's tho' !!!

                              I don't think it's fair to paint everyone in the '60s, and '70s in the AMCA as an O.P. motorcycle molester. Doc Patt was a chief judge, and former Prez and a staunch proponent of O.P. bikes. I joined the AMCA in the mid '70s and I remember many O.P. bikes that were the prize of collectors in those days.
