Beautiful bike. It looks like mine. All it needs is a whiskey cork for the hole in the steering head tube. Good place to keep your insurance cards and registration in a plastic bag.

Good idea to go ahead and fit a 14 AH battery in there while you have it down unless you have plans for a new type battery. The 12 AH is just not enough for the bike as far as I can tell.
