Why Restore 1 when you can restore 2 1977 S&S

So I bought this 77 for the trailer for $350 with no title. Needed a trail for the 79 that I am restoring also. Well found out I can get a title so we decided to restore this one to. At the same time as the 79.

Pulled the 77 apart today. Pulled the motor out and to our surprise the pylon and bracket wheee laying laying underneath. Someone also did the hard part and replaced the stringers. Now we are in some need of motor and trans mounts. We only have one of each. Also need a windshield and frame. Can someone verify the motor is correct for the year? It is completely different than the 79. Raw water pump, oil pressure switch, water plumping, exhaust manifolds are different. Also looks like we got a recently rebuilt motor. Assembly grease is still on the head studs. Don't even think it has been run yet

sweet man. Nice luck on the stringers and engine. Hopefully it's a lot less work than you originally thought...

Though you still need another trailer :-)
