Hey all, recently picked up a decently clean and complete EC 5 speed. It’s heavy as heck and I want to strandie it. Is that a sacrilege? I’m keeping all the original parts and paint and decals will be OG but thinking of removing chainguard tabs and cable stops. Thoughts? This seems like a rare bike but not exactly sought after. Nor does it seem all that high quality. Will I be kicking myself someday for modifying? Thanks for any input!
