Re: PICTURE OF YOUR BIKE/BIKES

There goes another one. Such a shame to see very good condition airheads turned into future junk. I wish artists would find worn out examples to 'make their personal unique copy of what everyone else does, with a brown seat and header wrap' Nothing to do with purism, all to do with appreciation.
