    Final Build Notes: In comparison to some of the other contenders, this is a fairly basic customization. It was planned as such as I started late for health reasons - again. However, with plating small parts black, powdering rear wheel - fork - skull - fork springs to match the OG paint scheme...

    I am not sure how many I will be able to build going forward with the health condition I am in but this one surely came out as planned. Now, in comparison to some of the other contenders, this is a fairly basic customization. However, with plating bolts, powdering and extending a steering...

    @Starnger Yeah, that's a lesson I had to learn. Masking your own pieces is the way to go as well as experimenting with the skill level of the powder industry - which could vastly differ from shop to shop!
