From Beater to Heater

I bought this rattle-canned beater from my little bro for cheap. Ran like a champ, that was about all it did right. A lot of time went into this restoration. The color combo is not for everyone but I'm really happy how it turned out. What do you think?

Have you considered applying for a position at Aprilia's design studio?

Dude! It appears to me that a lot of love went into this resto. Great job, it looks fantastic.

That being said, your chain looks a little loose.

Very very nice. Looks like you put a ton of time into it. May not be everyone's favorite color combo but it's very tasteful and looks factory to someone who doesn't know. I think it looks fantastic.
