Thanks, Matt, Greg and Ernie
Cant find the post you meant, ernie
I still have all of mine original sulfur yellow parts, just with a lot of scratches on them
, I will probably let them painted one day.
There are some other things that wont stay original but will get a cafe-racer look, I will re-design the seat, frontfender and rearfender. Mainly because the chrome is in bad shape with lot of rustspots and dents. It will stay this way until I find some beter parts.
Front vender was attacked by the PO for the installation of a front brace i think. Now it will be cut, Using an english wheel on it is just too timeconsuming for this ugly thing
The spokes will stay on the bike, I will buy some extra wheels later on to re-spoke them with steel ones. Just hope they are strong enough to ride on for the time being. (surface rust)
Now it is just time to find a sandbasting garage
It is important to check the driveshaft clock, I heard of 2 guys in holland, they both crashed at 70MPH because of the bearings inside that suddenly failed (cardan driven instead of a chain doesnt mean no maintenaince especially after 30 years
