Still need to swap out some parts to get it "correct" - handlebars, stem, pedals and a few other bits but I built it up with what I had while these pieces are located and took it out for a ride.

Much thanks to Scant for parts and advice and to Rumpfy for enthusiasm and support.

It rides AWESOME

Very cool bike - great to see it being ridden.

Is this the one that scant had for sale a while back?

Thanks for the kind words.
I have the brakes, bars, stem, pedals, tires and a few other bits on hand or on the way to bring it up to '91 JT spec.

I did manage to get this other piece of equipment though not necessarily a '91 version and not part of the bike. :)
