ohhh! i like this bike ! just the right amount of patina without overdoing a restoration on an already nice bike ! to me she is a rider ready to go around the world three times without a bathroom break ! thats just me ! i like her a lot ! i guess i will have to pass getting a new left hip on june 8th to go with my new knee joint last april 29th pretty soon i should be back up to speed .i hope she finds a loving home ,she sure deserves a loyal owner who will smoke the botttom bracket bearings as needed LOL !
