    lovely bike, wish we could get deals like that here in SA! The guys have said it a few times here, but don't go anywhere near Joe Lucky 13's look and feel, it would be very sad to do that to this bike. Rather ride it for a year and by then you would have fallen in love with the stock look, then buy another bike and do the Joe Lucky thing to a wreck rather.

    For my money, I would say you should restore that old girl back to her former beauty, by the looks of it you wont have to do much...too many beautiful old bikes getting turned into shoddy "cafe's" these days. I started out doing that exact same thing and have changed direction and gone back to stock and couldnt be happier
    Be yourself, unless you suck...

    20 - That explains everything as I didn't get much when I was 20. Not a slam against you. It just at 20 you really don't have any real life experience to value anything with a little age on it. Most of the guys here have grown up with 70's style bikes and more than likely owned a few when we were 20 - so when we see a really clean bike from that era it kicks in our "Gee I remember that" from our memory banks and the fun we use to have back then. That's the reason why vintage cars/motorcycles, hot rods and muscle cars are bring the dollars they do today - it's a return to the time when WE were in our 20's.. I'm sure in another 20 years, you will also fall into the same thinking us older guys and start railing on younger guys yourself..

    Good luck with your project -
