of which i am a member of too (same user name chrisE) and you will find more info and alot of pix (it is first a gallery, forum second web site). also for us motorbikers you might find parts there that may set your rides apart from the rest. btw 26 bucks was definitely a steal if it is in unrestored condition with original parts which it seems to be it could fetch even more, upwards of 500 bucks, so dont do anything to it dont add (unless its correct for that bike) paint, or remove just let it be. wish i came across a bike like that for 26 bucks, well that was my 2 cents.......
Dont worry nothing will change on this bike and yes It is all original down to the tires. If I did anything it would only decrease the value. Only thing it needs is a tube in the front tire. $26 was a steal and Im sure I will never come across a deal like that again. I love it.
