Brett, that is so tough looking. I really dislike the pads but she sure is gorgeous. How do you feel about how she rides, your bar change?

 

I keep mine by the fireplace and look at it like fine art!

I know the pads suck. I really can't tell you how it rides, first day I got it back from getting the wheels relaced I took it outside and started riding. I stood up to crank and the freewheel disintegrated and I almost went over the bars. Sitting on it feels A LOT better then my AP did, kinda feels like my Judge.

I keep this next to my love seat, the bike is perfect. First bike I have had with 1pc cranks since the 5th grade.LOL

I almost swapped them till I talked to you Kerry, it would homogenize it if I put 3pc on. It would look like every other one. I'm still amazed at the finish on this, it truly is near 10 of 10. I originally bought to flip but its now one of my favorites. Most of all dealing with Jim pushed it over the top, he is a wonderful and giving man.

Indeed about Jim. Yeah, I used OPC on mine as well and I wouldn't change it for anything. The set is a thing of beauty and a raw deal vintage race machine. I didn't want to just throw profiles or 401's on and make it look like any other. It's amazing how close ours are. I like the hard ano and the bars look stellar.

Thanks PK can't wait to actually ride it. I think I stole this one, I think the F/F is worth what I paid complete. It was still a grip though. LOL

Ok with the pads? Because they are repops? I had an og set just like them on my AP. I will say the pads look like shit repops even though they came from Jim the screen printing is crap

Never a fan of that pad design - og or repop - sold a nos blk set of those Flite style yrs ago with no regret. I'd swap the 1/2" SX for 1/2" DX and that's about it.

 

That's a nice clean frame set, has it been refinished ?

Same here, just never a fan of the pad set. I wouldn't throw them away or anything, just thinking another set would make a big difference.

Looks great. One piece cranks to me nowadays really make a bike. Kind of more "everyday" and what I typically saw back hen. Very few racers around my tracks ran 401s or Profiles because we couldn't afford them. If I could find some Sugino one piece cranks in 180mm, I would put some on my cruisers. They're hard to find in that size.

 

I prefer the first gen pads too.

I've loved this bike since you sent me the first set of pixs.

 

I wouldn't change anything on it, at all.

Yes, I saw that. Sugino 180's were my weapon of choice back in the eighties :)
