    If you have to ugly wrap the pipes, at least do a good job :dirtdog

    He did in fact ugly wrap the pipes. I have to admit that is one of the worst wrap jobs I've seen.
    He metaphorically dotted the i's and crossed the t's on that build with that wrap.

    Well, the bones are there to bring it back to a nice cafe racer. Maybe mt60 tires, bigger seat, unwrapped pipes, painted tank and longer fenders. Coulda been something, but alas, the kids style eludes me. One question - was that bike a dual rear shock to begin?

    The worst of both worlds! Do you suppose it gets many miles put on it? Maybe to Starbucks and back,... maybe.

    They way they are all grabbing for it, one might think the headstock separated itself from the erector set frame.
