Congratulations on a stunning restoration...while most folks want to chop,bob or cafe' these bikes you've taken this back to its OEM condition, My hats' off to you...

Part of me wants to be pissed you're doing that to the old survivor. But the other part thinks it looks like fun!

This was my first motorcycle 30 years ago. OK, many will call it a moped but my Kreidler felt much more than than that when I was 16 years old. Imagine an upgrade from a bicycle to something like this. Only 50cc but it opened up the world for me. I rode all the way from the Netherlands to Northern France which was a huge adventure at that age in the early 80s. Well, at least for me it was.

Trust me... With the huge amount of salt they put on the roads here in NY, running it in that field is a whole lot better than on the roads, Plus it looks like more fun

I took the 72 out for a country ride today and even though the roads are dry there's still a lot of salt laying around. I've got an XR650 that I like to do the snowy fields with :) Power slides in the mud WOOHOO!
