Exellent job !

I built the exact same kit wayyy back in 1975 ? ( I think ? )

I also built it right out of the box, exept I shortend the fork's a bit.

( I even painted it the same color you painted your's ! )

No wonder I like it !

Dont worry about the thumb print.... paint it rust and call it battle damage.

   Soon to be on the bench...

I built this kit the first time as a kid in the early 80s, painted it black and shortened the forks as well.  I was feeling nostalgic a couple years ago and picked up this one on ebay.  Needless to say, I did a better job this time!

Thanks for the kind words,

Larry

Looks good, quite a wild chopper. you could add even more detail with things like brake and throttle cables if you wanted to.
