Pictures aren't great, sorry. Laced first gen Sunshine sealed hubs to some red 7Cs. Takagi Tourney with chrome KKT Rat traps. Also added an early Kashimax. Black fluted bars & OGK Mach grips. Feeling right.

I would have been 8 in 78. I would have been the baddest 8 year old if I would have rocked that bike! Love it...

Thanks, fellas. I've had this bike for seven or eight years. These are the first changes I've made to it.

By the way, the oval plate is mine from back in 1979. The "45" and "ashtabula" sticker are from back then too.

Would have been a cool bike to have back in the day, or even right now. Looks great.

Thanks, guys. The original paint has such a nice deep color to it. Redline red is my favorite color.
