Ive always been a tad strange when it comes to my deep love for hardcore patina/crust but the good thing is that most folks hate bikes like that so i get alot of really awesome bikes for a lot cheaper when in actuality, one mans negative selling points are my positive buying points.Love your 54 phantom tacochris! I must agree with you when it comes to loving the bikes more when they show their age! I must say though I do prefer the aged and loved look over the crusty. To each his own beauty! Love the personal expression that comes through with all the bikes being posted on this thread! I picked up this beaten down Shelby and plan to make it a rider again! Going to use the 41 roadmaster girls bike that was broken in half and welded back together as a parts doner. Rusty Relics Rule!
