So I finally got around to buying that parts bike I mentioned a couple of months ago.
It's got 21,000 miles on it, and is in almost exactly the same shape as the bruiser.
I haven't decided what to do with it yet. Maybe a streetfighter with modern suspension and wheels but oldschool bodywork?
I was planning on using the tank on mine, but other than the white stripe it's in no better condition. The paint is a little worse, but it doesn't have the big dent on the left side. It's missing a few parts but they're all cheap and easy to find.
