    Yeah Frank did the chrome and cad. I'm doing all the prep work and plan to paint it under the supervision of my mentor long time collector under the radar. Does amazing work.

    Looking good Mark. Now that you don't have to spend all of your time packing a bike for some guy in Georgia you'll have time to get after this thing and get it painted and together! V/r Shawn

    No rush Mark.
    Well worth the wait. " good things come to those who wait! "
    Looking forward to the finished product. I'm sure every detail will be correct. That's what takes time. How many projects have a bright shiny paint job and other details left behind.
    Patience.....
