    Beautiful man. I have the same bike, but mine is in need of a restoration. Nice to see one all pretty still!

    Dang Don those VW's are costly are you sure you didn't get a split window instead of a Ghia? Good looking bike man, glws! Shouldn't last long.

    Ok Don, you can consider it SOLD!
    I'll get with you tomorrow morning to work out the details.

    BTW...I'd like a chainguard on it. Any idea what a proper for this bike chainguard looks like? So I can be on the lookout for one!

    You'll like this bike. Correct without a guard.

    Thanks for the image Frank! I like that!!! Looks like that model has different bars and grips than this one, but that's not a problem for me. As a kid, I changed my bike up frequently. I now wonder how I rode it around those West Virginia Hills with all of the stuff I put on it!!!

    The chainguard idea is not for origionality purposes, it's to keep my leg clean!!! LOL I ride my bikes regularly, and ocasionally get my right leg blackened from getting against the greasy chain when I have to stop, or reverse the direction on a skinny bike trail, and then too for long pants in the cool season. A proper chain guard goes on and off pretty easily, and a little creatave use of duct tape can protect the paint from more damage.
