I'm in the final stages of the restoration of my '63 800 but I'm not sure if the hood ornament is original or just something someone thought would look alright. It fits on good over the metal strip that runs down the center of the bonnet which I know does belong there. Since I have not seen one anywhere else in all my research, I welded the holes over. Now of course I am starting to doubt myself. Any thoughts?103_1236.jpg

That ornament is not original.
All that should be there is that long chrome strip.stripe.jpg
