    So I bought this from a local picker friend of mine. It's in great shape and it will clean up like new. It's got a blue band two speed that shifts fine. I'm thinking these bars were dealer replaced as they look like they've been on the bike since day one.
    I'm thinking of replacing the bars with full size ones and the seat with a flowered sting ray piece.
    The question is, should I make the changes or keep it as is? And, if I was to sell this, what would be a reasonable price to ask? I have an idea but I just want to see how far off I am. Thanks for the help. 14fceee96864da008a8301d9768fc2e1.jpg

    Make it clean and enjoy it. Also the hoop on the sissy bar looks short.

    Sky Blue went thru a few shade changes during it's time along with many of the other colors. For the first couple three years it was a light shade and sometime in 66 SB had a shade change and was a wee bit darker. 66 SB dropout and 67 Varsity.
