I've been told the lugs were in plentiful supply :D
I don't think Sonic made frames for CB, from what i know i doubt they could have handled the volume of units.
I could email Helmut and find out :D

Mine was far-east made, 853, a bit dead feeling and too small.

I sold it and now I kinda wish I hadnt but it went to happy owner.

:oops: If i'm 100% honest the choice was made after i realised all the paint i had at work was semi gloss so would need gloss clearcoat which is loads more work/money :?
This paint was on Jose's shelf in the workshop, just enough left for 1 frame :D
The frame in the pic is one of Jose's :wink:
