I'm proud of her WITH the black rims! I knew what you meant. I have no regrets on powdercoating them black at all though, I think it makes the whole bike look nicer.

sky44: Yes, I ABSOLUTELY plan to ride her a LOT! In fact, once we're all done here, I'll probably start a 2nd thread that will document the rides that we go on together. Should be fun!

Rapid Dog: I haven't tried to start her yet. Hopefully this weekend. Still got to fill all the fluids, adjust the breaks, and do any carb tinkering that ends up being necessary. Very, very close though!
