Sorry, no comment on this question, as I do not see eye to eye with the manufacture of this particular frame.

heres min bought off the flea market here.

i get it thursday. couple of things i want to change. one being the chrome rear wheel and the aluminum front. stopped at a friends work (vintage car and motorcycle retailer). was poking around in their junk room and found this.

straight 18 incher wtih no tire iron marks, nice spokes, couldn't believe it. when i asked him how much his response was "take it".
next up, seat change.

I'm thinking your bike may actually look better with a front fender. It seems a little unbalanced, possibly because of the substantial rear fender.

That looks a lot better with the fender.

The seat looks painful.

Does the license plate grind in left hand corners, or is it hinged?

definitely much better with the fender .

How is that bag mounted? I've got an ancient saddlebag that I thought of doing something quite similar....
