Re: Straight Bar for first build
I don't know the year on the bike.
I considered leaving the rims AS-IS for a rat rod look, but I think they are beyond hope for being trued. Shame too, because a tin can fuel tank on the back would go right along with that theme.
I am a little concerned about this hobby though. I am already having people ask if I will build for them. I don't want to go down that path. I too have been there with cars and people seem to think that once you work on it, you need to fix whatever breaks for as long as they own the dang thing.
My other concern is getting carried away. I can see it would be very easy to end up with 4 or 5 of these things "just because".
