    Picked this one up last night. I Need to fix 2nd gear but it is a super nice bike besides that. I have a few other projects to do first before I can work on this one.

    Somebody really loved that bike to put all the effort and expense into the chrome plating and paint.

    Congratulations. Should be a fun project.

    Might have to keep something for once in my vmax career but money always seems to talk to me. It kind of sucks doing this for a living all the cool shit comes and goes

    Man that is sweet. Looks like a shifter and second gear and your ready to rock. What did it Dyno? I'm thinking 170 plus.

    Even though it's a beautiful paint job, I thought the same thing but I didn't want to say it. It is "busy".

    Looking forward to watching the progress.

    You may think about seeing if you could sale the cover/fenders, etc. for $$ or even swap those plus a little $.
