Thanks again for all the compliments. I actually have been so busy lately I haven't had time to ride it much, plus I don't want to get it dirty!! :crosso

Well documented rebuild. Nice that you saved her for the dissection of eBay.

WOW! I was surprised when I logged in a couple of days ago and my bike was staring at me on the Welcome page. All of your comments are most appreciated as well as the BOTM designation!
