OPPS, sorry for the error on AMF ownership.It was the
inability to get parts through Stuckey's Harley Davidson
in Kansas City during the AMF years that resonate in my

AMF didn't build any of the Hummers

Wow, two of fifty is still pretty impressive! It's good
to know of an in-tact sample for reference. My Pacer was
originally Blue/White, a color not found listed as a
pacer color for '63; but then AMF is not known for
consistency, are they? I will trace down the engine
builder and advise you of his contact info. He moved from
this location about a year-and-a-half ago.I will also
check for his parts source. I will soon have a want list
for the components needed for my project and will post
them here. Thanks for the response; looking forward to
sharing with you again.


Jerry, hello. There is at least one more. I have one. An
original paint black/white 1963, (63BTU1731). It's
complete but the motor is apart. The motor will get a
rebuild soon but I'm going to leave the rest of the bike
as is. Mind saying who did the motor work on yours?

Hello Hummer fans, I am in process of taking
inventory of my '63 Pacer BTU that I have owned for the
past 53 years. It's had an interesting life.
I took it for a ride, then put the bike in 'safe'
storage on the family farm in 1979. When I brought it to
Kentucky in 2012 I discovered it had been seriously
abused by my late nephew. The engine was seized, on
disassembly I determined the bike had been submerged in
muddy water and put back in the barn. Literally 'rode
hard and put away wet'.
To date I have had the engine and ignition completely
rebuilt with NOS parts, and am ready to begin on the
chassis. I will be needing a few missing pieces and am
hopeful to find as many original parts as possible.
According to the Hummer Club production charts, this may
be the only '63 Pacer BTU in existence. How glad I am
that I saw this chart before having the engine rebuilt. I
would have ported the throttle restriction had I not.
Looking forward to learning more of the Hummer history
and dealing the Club's members. Thanks for all the work
in establishing this site.
