Frame assembly - Powder coated (Ink Black)
Engine Paint - matt 60% black
Atlas Chrome Plating - Texas

Buchanan spokes
Chain - Drag Specialties 4/28
Hardware - Metric Motion Pro

Thanks to all that responded to my many parts requests. Special thanks to "Moonpup" for the NOS throttle cable ..

Onto the next project ..
