Based out of Southern California, AMEN (which stood for American Motorcycle ENgineering) made a name for themselves with lots of parts for choppers – but their specialty was in frames. Their best known chassis was called the Savior (some people say because it “Saved Your Ass”) as it looked rigid but had two shocks to soak up bumps in the rear. In AMEN’s advertising, they called it “the soft one that looks hard.” You could buy Savior frames for almost every displacement of CB motor – here’s an example of the biggest variant at the time that’s being offered with no reserve.
The seller acquired this bike when he moved to Seattle for work a few years ago and has put about 1,800 miles on it since. During that time he added a front disc (a wise choice, I don’t care what anyone says about the styling), new grips, new mirrors, a new seat, chopped the rear fender, rebuilt the carb, wrapped the pipes, added a speedometer and odometer, added some graphics, and more.
