That was me on the Simplex. My dad unfortunately sold it when I was about 14 or 15. I have missed it for some time and I have looked for another one to replace it for several years. I just happen to find one last year at Portland for sale and I didn’t waist any time buying it because it was so complete and unrestored. It was exactly just what I was looking for. It’s in really good condition with very little work needed to get it back to running condition. It’s only missing a chain guard and a taillight assembly. I hope to have it with me next year at Portland. My only dilemma is deciding whether to restore it to the condition of the way it was when I was a kid, or restore it to show condition as it was when it was new.
