Thanks for all the info. I bought that "Flag" Spirit on Tuesday. It's a red one with only 6100 miles and it's # 69. Looks like brand new. I knew the person and he's very meticulous about his "toys". I have other Gilroy's ('03 Chief, '01&'02 Scout's) and never considered a Spirit since it was an in-betweener,but I'm happy I did- BEAUTIFUL bike ! Will be sending pix.
They made 70 bikes total. 12 of those were true Spirit of America bikes that has a bit fancier paint job than most with flags on the fender and a special commemorative paint job on the dash.
The other 58 came in one of two combinations. All had the same flag work on the tank, but the outer color of the tank was either red or blue. And the fenders matched the tanks either red or blue.
I am only speculating on this one as their is no official data, but I think they made a few more blue ones than red ones.
If you ever want to sell this let me know. I used to own a 2001 exactly the same as yours....Numbered 69 bike. Like a fool I sold it to a snowbird from Canada. [email protected]
