Johnson or Scalora - Who Really Built the "Roman Holiday"?

The first two page article is from a 1967 Modern Cycle Magazine and the second is from a 1968 Ed Roth's Choppers Magazine (copy courtesy of Gabe Griffin). I think Johnson built the trike and then Scalora got it and fixed it up to his specs. For a color comparison of the two versions check this picture here and then type "Roman Holiday" in the search box for the second version at an old bike show! I don't imagine it was roadworthy with that Sulky wheel in the second version but man does it look amazing with the 2" x 28"er! I feel this is the crem-de-la-crem of all trikes!
