Also, good to hear one of the bikes are in good hands--maybe someday it will be on display with a recently restored vehicle from the caravan.
I've seen the shark bike at the Milwaukee Harley Museum, but I didn't see the bike at the Smithsoneon--when I was in Washington in 2009, they told me it was in storage. What they did have out were signed gloves from muhammad ali (that can be purhcased from his store for $5,500)--I guess they thought that was more important!
Also, is this the bike in SD: http://mrob.smugmug.com/Travel/Wyoming-July-2009/6822498_erJts#437194149_tU4bw
Looks like most of the memorabilia is from George Hamilton's movie--they should give Bob a call and ask for some pointers how to do it correctly.
