Well deserved! Very cool, very old-school looking bike. I love spoked rims, but this guy makes them look better than I've ever seen!

what was it before you started?

never mind i just read the title. really nice job. i'm planning on ratting out an old 1500/ wish us luck.

did you have to reset the carbs since you put the straight pipes on it?
