Like it. Like it a lot!

Those golden H20´s with the black bottles fit in quite good.
Frontwheel and rear left side with some radial lacing would def. look good on that one, too :)

Friendly greetings

Love that. Do I recall correctly that you found it in the rafters of a bike shop in the southeast or something like that? Makes me wish I left my neighborhood more often!
