Bonanza experts. This MX-1510 has a mag wheel rear but different front wheel. Anyone know if there was some parts shortages at factory and small parts differences as its believed to be original? I know there are other changes on bike, like yellow paint motor mounts, air can and wire sleeving. Thx.

50 years and how many owners...all the hard to find expensive stuff is there.

Picked this Scout up about 2 miles from my house a few weeks ago. Started a freshening up. Chrome was really good. Stripped it down and got the paint on today. You can see remnants of original orange paint when prepping it. Sprayed a primer , hugger orange, and a clear coat. Came out ok for a front yard rattle can job. Cleaned up the wheels and put a new slick on the front(came stock I think). I have a NOS kickstand, peg rubbers, and Cherry brake lever coming soon. Saddle is original with a few small holes. Keeping it, I think its cool for 50+ years old. Going to let the frame sit for a week or two and should have the parts to put together when the frame is cured. Would be nice to have an original HS40 to put back in it but apparently that is a tough item to get.

Anyone have MX-1510 brake backing and fork wiper spring clamps? Parts not returned from platers:(.
Sucks...backing plates for the 69 and up don't pop up as often, I have heard an Azusa 5" brake assembly can work, looks correct minus brake arm/lever. I ended up finding originals after awhile so never tried it myself.
