Well done! Looks like the artwork is in good condition too. I think it'd be fun to just leave it that way.

Nice bike - but no excuse for not taking a grinder to the chrome grab rail :deal

Actually I do have to take responsibility for that. I added it to the solo saddle.

What's with the gauges? Doesn't look like the correct cluster for the bike.

that is the stock instrument cluster for all Converts. I mounted it on the rear most handlebar clamp bolts, which pulled it back an inch or so. Looks much more integrated...

In 1975 my Dad and I toured all through Europe, into the Arctic circle on a Convert. We were the first Americans to even lay an eye on one, Joe & Mike Berliner hadn't even seen one before us!!!!!! We had (GASP) electrical problems throughout the trip, along with BIG brake problems. I say BIG, because with not being able to even downshift to slow down...................:eek2

All in all, ours was a POS!
BTW, Pop was a dealer for all things European with 2 wheels.
