I posted this elsewhere on ADV, but it fits best here.

Before:



and after a winter of fiddling



It looks a bit better in the pictures than it does in real life. Its a renovation and clean-up, not a restoration, and certainly nothing like MZRIDER Charlie's incredible work.

So far I have about 150 miles on it. It rides well and the engine is sweet, powerful and as smooth as silk. Not bad for a bike I bought as a parts bike, mainly for the front wheel.

Perhaps "airbrushed", like those pin up girls ?...

What an iconoclastic beauty, you dog.

ADV8,

You should see the smile on my face. That little comment made me immensely happy. I only hope that the bike lives up to its billing and gives you great pleasure.

All the best

Nick

So beautiful I won't apologize for quoting it yet again... It may be my favorite bike hands down. I saw one pretty much identical to yours in color/condition etc. sitting out in the rain in NW Portland one day. I had a great deal of respect for the owner of it actually using the bike for what it was intended!
