Well even though he's a fun-gi, he'll still leave you in the dark, like a mushroom.
Actually, he's more of a toad's tool! :?

Let's just say its probably worth about 2k more after 50 hours graft :D . The handle bars are correct for an American spec bike. The English spec bikes were pressed steel similar to our beloved C90s.

The bike came from Lake Geneva, Wisconsin where a previous owner had it for many years. I purchased it because of it's originality and has 13K miles on the clock plus very few owners looking at the American title.

Looks as if it's a bit of a posh area.....

"Lake Geneva. ... After the American Civil War, Lake Geneva became known as the “Newport of the West,” a popular year-round resort for wealthy Chicago residents who built summer homes and estates on the lake and in the wooded hills."

We have a Newport in Essex too!

There is a biker meet first Tuesday of every month at the Old Kiora Café in aid of Essex and Herts Air Ambulance. Just saying.
