AEE finned dishpans

This is an interesting piece I came across....this is an ad from the very early days of AEE Choppers. It shows their name as AEE Choppers Unlimited.

At some point there was a lawsuit between Tom McMullen the founder and whoever came up with the finned panhead covers. We always sold them but ours had been modified (you can see them in the catalogs), I presume to get around the design by the guy that sued Tom. At any rate here is another long lost piece of AEE history:
