Neater lines and subtler proportions than many. Looking gewd.

It was a little rough when I first started it. Stripped it down and powder coated the frame, rims and ancillary parts. Bought an extra rear rim and had it respoked to the front hub. Had Buchanan's respoke.

Thank you advCo! Lots of fun to do and found that the GS450 2 cylinder is the perfect platform for doing a cafe.
