HI guys, newbie here, just thought i would post some pics of my new retro ride.

Image Image Image Image Image Image

As far as i am aware, the only items that are not original are the rear shock, the original shock was leaking and i had to replace it. The grips and bar ends were a bit tatty so i refreshed those. Its been a while since i rode a bike (used to race) and i was pleasantly surprised after my first ride on her. Hope you all agree its not a bad example.
