Beautiful, what a lovely restoration, I think you father in law would have been very pleased.. Now take your wife out for some nice trips on it.. The chrome and paint looks stunning..

Thank you. I will be taking her (the wife and bike) for that ride soon. I am waiting for tune-up parts and weather without rain.

Looks fantastic. Is that an early Vetter fairing?

That's really beautiful. I am just starting my restoration. Hope it comes out as good as yours. By the way, where did you find the blue valve cover emblems?

They are original! All 75's SHOULD be blue.
