    Love the Mercury Pacemakers. This one had serious rust under the head shroud so I made new parts to repair it. Didn't think it would be right to sell it as an original so what the hell---chop it up ! Pics tell the story.

    That looks awesome! And the repairs you made, wow. Great way to make a custom classic without ruining a valuable bike!
    Really well done.
