When I was over there a few years ago saw a Harley for sale and every piece of chrome on it including the spoke wheels was rusty. So much salt in the air you have to wash chrome almost every day they say.
The yellow SSR abadssr is talking about is owned by George Willsey. George passed away last June. When Lisa and I were in Hilo we met up with Kathy, his love interest. He has a red SSR as well. George Barris had signed the glove box on the “Batman” yellow SSR. George was project oriented and had been working on both R’s. He was a hell of a great story teller and was someone I really enjoyed talking too.
