    I'm glad to have this one done. It's one of my favourite bikes. I always loved that front end, and when I got a chance to own one for just $200 and some spare parts I jumped at it. It's also cool to have a bike that was born the same year as I was. I entered 3 bikes in this round and 2 are crossing the finish line. I'll take those results any year. Here is my final pic with a few close-ups. I hope you like it!!

    I'm with you, my favorite bike. I just wish it came in big kid size, or at least my welding skills were up to par.

    Anyway, well done. Glad to see it in the finished thread.

    I had never ridden one before the other day, and I was surprised at how much fun it was to ride despite the low seat and the raked headset.
