    Great bike! And the polishing is “off the charts” I think the scratches give it character. Scratches are like scars. And you know what they say about scars.
    Scars are just tattoos “with better stories”

    I’ll never understand why they stopped turbo-charging bikes. Nice ride!

    re. the citrus degreaser problem — i’ve discovered that a longish soak in Starbrite’s aluminum cleaner (some sort of acid?) restores nasty blackened aluminum to matt silver, which then easily polishes back to the shiny stuff it was always supposed to be.
