This bike is Willard
Wolfe's Big Base privateer. Willard worked in the engine dept. at the factory
and was responsible along with Jimmy Hill for assembling and testing all
the 648 racers. He also had a dealership at 435 State St. in Springfield,
and was rated Expert in all types of racing, gaining the most acclaim for

his existing race bike which has some pretty trick "factory special" stuff
already. His plate # was usually 22.
