Scott, you have performed a superb recovery on that beast. While viewing on my phone, I could swear some of the ladies were waving at us!

Thanks guys for the comments.

Stretched my restore skills but turned out OK.  Don't plan on selling this so didn't mind showing the warts and all.

Thrilling to see it running again Scott.

You did an excellent job on this restoration.

I have really enjoyed following your thread.

Where did you find all the riders? 🤠
