Yeah I really can't wait to this bike on the road. I had 7days off recently and the parts just seemed to come in at just the right time. My wife was ready to have me committed for workin 12 hrs. a day on it but I know she'll appreciate the effort when shes giving everyone the Queen Of England wave as we ride by.

Sounds like you're ready for a maiden voyage Artmann......operating cables are smooth and lubed? Get on that dog and make it whine. You are at the same stage of ressurection I was last year........ ran my bike one season and the dang waterpump went down on me. You'll be just fine friend............. enjoy.

No paint job necessary. The skins on this bike were immaculate Wineberry Red. It sat for 15 years under a flannel lined cover so this was purely a mechanical remake. Everything is original and I rebuilt whatever I could. One exception are the brake lines I did have new stainless ones made. Amazingly the CB, intercom, cassette player and radio all operate perfectly. Best $700.00 bucks I ever spent on a bike. Oh almost forgot the $1000.00 in parts and labor.
