Additional comments - Needed a lot of work when I got it, as shown in the pictures.
I got it off another Club member after it sat for a great many years in pieces.
After owning a couple of American Chargers, I never thought I'd have another old Val. In fact, I was done with cars as I've been into bikes the last few years, but it's was great just having something to work on and start from the ground up. Mind you, I didn't really want what I initially called "a basket case", but after 3 solid years of builing it, it's a really nice original "R" now.

Would love to hear from other "R" owners.
