    This is an early 1975 Matthews MS-1 with early aluminum girder fork and elusive MS-1 seat. This is near complete. The rear Femco hoop ought to be a no dimple Araya. And the tires are wrong. I'll source the right stuff.

    I'll take a good long time bringing this back. I want to remove the spray moving and exhume the original finish. I won't refinish any of this baby.
