Looks a lot like my first bike, I called her Zippy. That one hit 45mph pretty easy. Looks like ya took the tank down to the metal. I think if ya polish it with fine steel wool and just put a light coating of oil on it,(to keep it from rusting,) you'll have a good look for the tank.
The triple trees don't ride any harder than any other solid fork and they look cool. I don't like riding them, my old butt just can't take it anymore.
Good lookin bike bro, and if yer hittin 50 then ya did it up right.
