I just noticed this thread, I have been in to those for years. When my wife and I were first married, she said she'd like me to build her a Dream to ride, after convincing her that a Superhawk would be far better, she said OK. We found a guy that was planning to restore a bike, and realized he was never going to get it done, so he sold us his project. It took a year, and probably a thousand dollars, but we ended up with a perfect riding bike. Our pipes were up sweep meg, and the wheels were new on stainless spokes. I had polished the hubs, and most other alum, the thing looked together!! The paint was done, black, professional. It was our only bike for a while. I entered it in the Craig Vetter milage contest, at La Guna,Seca in 1983, got 103 mpg, almost made the track final. Anyway we still have it and one more, not currently, workable, but still kept in our collection.
