I like that! Such an early bike but looks great. Good attention to small bits of detail :)

Just found out an interesting fact about the color scheme. Jeff Lindsay was driving to the Whiskeytown Downhill race and saw a California Dept of Forestry helicopter painted in lime green with orange stripes and loved the color scheme.......and went home and started painting bikes with the same color scheme.

Fantastic inspiration for a paint scheme that shouldn't really work but most definitely does.

Ah, we were all taller in them days! Those must be the finest looking fork crowns ever brazed.
