That looks like it can go places! I think old bikes look great kitted out in 'epic journey' mode. I have pics of my old Tufftrax somewhere loaded up like that.
That photo was a while ago, below is what it's like now complete with trekking bars, my heavy duty tourer! Sorry if it offends anyone!
Easy Rider, I think the paintwork is cool, you won't find anyone who will be able to reproduce that unless of course moneys is no object, and then you will destroy some of the original bike.
I don't want to start a discussion but I much prefer the patina of unrestored against "as new" paintwork, as Dr S said it tells a story, others like a bike to look like it's never been used, thats OK too.
It's funny but with antique furniture people nearly always like patina, if you were to renovate an antique the way people do with vehicles & bikes folks would be horrified & say you've ruined it, it would be worth far less, Strange. Sorry, bit off topic.
