I been so busy building bikes, fixing bikes and working I just cant take on another project.

If anyone wants to buy a barn find/non running bultaco/montesa/ossa. Id love to help you work on it. Great bikes and soo underrated.

My latest project.

OTOH, while it does have head and tail lamps ('light' is too strong a word ...) they're strictly of the 'HAIKU' variety - as in:

I've been looking for an older bike for my brother. I think we are onto a Yamaha IT, but I came across this beauty. Not sure where to post it so I'll try here.
