That bike rides really nice too. I kept all the original patina. I just took it down to bare bones, cleaned every piece that was coated with 60 year old grease and put it back together. If course there are always challenges...like trying to find shoulder bolts for the springer. I had a machinist friend of mine make them. Added a few accessories and it's ready to roll.
I was glad to help her and it's nice to see another girls bike back on the road instead of being parted out.
