Barnett & Calori Pre-unit Rigids

Barnett's Triumph is super minimalist with the 1/2 Mustang tank, crazy clip bars, and super thin seat! This bike has one of the best examples of a chromed pre-unit springer with black gators. Most guys don't go as far as to chrome the upper tubes above the gators but this front end is perfectly functional and very eye catching! (article from a 1961 Car Craft issue)

Calori's Pre-unit is so similar to Barnett's that I thought I should make the connection here! The use of MCM or Bates slip covers is about the only difference between the two bikes apart from the slightly beefier solo seat. (from a Rodder's Journal a couple of years back)
