OG decals, head badge and bike shop decal intact. I upgraded the opc to a 3 piece, the og calipers would have been steel so the Weinmanns are a bit of an upgrade too.

Cheers mate, thanks for your comment  :daumenhoch: I enjoyed this build and she came together quickly for a change.

Yeah you're bang on there, I checked the Suzuki's out on the museum. Quite similar but the forks on the Suzuki's are much cooler, a little like the Fuji Feather and Pro forks, cool
