Looks great! I'd love to see an inverted fork set on there to make it modern. Aside from that... timeless.

Sounds like a handful to sort out. Any one of those issues could be tough to track down.

Hopefully the guy will part with the engine when the time comes.

My complaint/criticism is that this thread is way too spotty.

We need a full on article and many more pics & vids about the adventures of these bikes. Oh, I guess and the owner too.

I would sneak up at night to read/watch it.....
