Jesse's 62 XLCH still?

Can't remember if I posted this bike before, I saw it before the pipes were changing and looked for more shots of it. I found a post on 4Q that mentioned the bike was on sale. I grabbed these photos off the bay and the description below. Reserve wasn't meet. Beautiful bike. Is it still Jesse's? jessee.jpg jessee2.jpg jessee4.jpg jessee5.jpg jessee3.jpg Description from the bay: It's in great running condition, fires first kick every time! Fast and fun to ride, shifts smoothly and rides like a sweet chopper dream. This is a kick start only bike that took a year and a half to build with only the best parts. Sportster frame with weld on hard tail that is nice and straight with clean welds. 18" stock rear rim and brake with a fire stone 450. Wassel ribbed fender, stainless steel fender struts, Beautifully worn bates seat. Wassel peanut tank that's painted in HOK purple haze. Super narrow Arlen Ness springer front end that has been shortened. Homemade T- bars made with 4130 chromoly steel that are super narrow and fun to ride. The front wheel is a shouldered 21" 40 hole Ankrot rim with Bucannon spokes and spool hub. Front tire is an Avon 2.75 that is super narrow and super rare. It has some cracks from old age. little unknown head light that shines bright but could use some work. Tail light is there but is not hooked up. The oil bag is a Sportser Horseshoe, kinda rare. The motor is a 1962 Sportster XLCH that has been rebuilt by Pat Stevenson of Solsbyvill. It's tight and runs strong. Fires off first kick every time. It has a new clutch, new barrels, new oil pump, all new gaskets,bearings, bushings, pistons, rings and everything that goes in a rebuilt motor. The magneto has been freshly rebuilt. The carburator is a kehin with the sweetest little GEM air cleaner. The cases are polished and the pipes are homemade. Bike has fresh oil, fresh plugs, and a new oil filter.
