Is this a Manx body? ...I don't think it is but thought I would ask anyway...
If not what is it?

Dunno... Can't look at it until this weekend... Just trying to see if anyone know who's knock-off is...

He's selling it as a "Manxa" (?)... I could see that it was not a manx. Just trying to figure out it if it's even worth the bother... His price is a bit steep but seems pretty open to negotiation and he does have a few extra nice items in boxed up with it that might make it worth a trip.

Well what ever it was I'll never know... Owner informed me it was sold this morning... And personally I thought the $700 he wanted (and got) was way too steep considering the condition...

Oh well, the search continues... someday I will find a good future for the titled '67 pan just sitting idle here...

Thanks for all the ID help guys...

Right on BL3.. If I had seen this before I bought, I think I might have done it. Excellent, balanced design. You could really trick it up with bigass rivets and metal work. Here's the vid.
