    Another quality build Ed! I like the photos in the group with the rusted 'holey screen' behind them....the one with the flowers has all the colors in your bike! Your willingness to stretch and creativity with the paint colors and pin stripe and add-ons made this a one-of-a-kind. :thumbsup:

    Great job on this build, so many colors coming together, at first I wondered whether it was going to come out too busy, but it looks awesome. The color selection was dead on.

    With that awesome color scheme, this looks like it could have been the 'high end', boutique model for that year.
    Great interpretation of a classic bike.
    Cheers!

    As the good doctor noted above, it does look like the "high-end" model - great job on the paint choice and application. Classy build.

    Sharp bike ! I will have to agree with the others I wasn't exactly a fan of the color combo either . But I guess I didn't have the clear vision you did because it really looks great . Nice details very high end looking old bike

    Nice job! I like that you had a vision from the start, you seemed to have made a lot of believers out of doubters! Great photos too.
