The debutante came out in 1959 and was quite the beauty. This bike is highly collectible as it featured some very desirable accessories. The most notable accessory this bike featured was the dual head lamps name "twin-beam headlamps". These head lights to this day are extremely rare and can cost hundreds of dollars.
