I've got about 10 miles on it. Not sure how it'll hold up. Pretty flexy with my 190# on it

Rock Solid mate! ‘Plan Jane’ to ‘Chasey Lain’. It looks like a really solid ride and a lot of fun.
Thanks to you also for your support throughout the build..’You had me at DK’ ;)

Thanks much fellas. It was far more fun than some of my other builds. Simple, functional, but a little bit of a show off. Like me 😂

On to the next one......

If I saw that coming down the street I would think it was a modern bike, so you kind of demonstrate that old design does not have to be left to get old but it can remain as fresh as today. Like us!

I am impressed! :)
