Thanks, the PO had the rims milled; the powder coat was actually taken off with some aluminum up to a strip around the spokes. I love it, but theyre always dirty.
Yes, I have both antiques, running and insured. I have been monitoring this "new is the new old" thing. I just saw a mint 550 same as mine go for $2500? on ebay. Mine are not for sale.
Heh, I am from central AR, about 50? miles south of Rosebud. I have been there though, to my co workers house to ride horses. Its really rural.
