Great ride! Just need to get the front fork done over with replacement tubes. Originals are at the end of their service, bend and several surface damages at closer look.

But still l couldn’t be more happier with this. I like it a lot!

Here’s some back view for a change. The fender looks little crooked, fix it tomorrow :roll:

Methinks you might want to look into some rearsets with clip-ons that low.

Yes, that’s also in my check list. Quite comfy even with originals for me. I’m 6’ tall and some 3-4 inch backwards would be perfect. So no heavy sets then necessary.
