Just stumbled on this old thread and decided to update it.
The day this bike fell over in my friend's garage was the last day it ran. I pushed it home, parked it in the corner of my garage and it hasn't been moved since that day in May. It's covered with dust and I didn't even drain the fuel. The tires are still up and it looks ready to ride but it won't be me who rides it. Too bad. It was a pretty thing, wasn't it?
