Love it.

Either option would be excellent.

Darn it would make a excellent living room display.

Look at the size of that front stopper!!!!

If you've got the time, restore it! It's history on two wheels.

Personally, I couldnt own that and not restore it. Not to many of those floating around, if you have the means restore.

Looks close but not identical. I say restore it and ride it. It may just be me, but my opinion is that there is no sense in owning something functional just to have it sit around.

Press Any Key To Continue.
