History
Bought in three recycle bins and a frame. Two years later, I rode it for the first time. Every piece on the bike was rebuilt, replaced and made perfect while keeping within the "era" of 1982. The only modern upgrade unavailable in the early 80's are the stainless brake lines and a more modern front master cylinder. I do 100% of the work myself.
