This bike is in pretty good shape already, but as usual there were a few changes and touches I have in mind in order to make it more my bike. For starters, it was set up to do some touring with the rack and the Krausers. That’s not going to be the role of this bike, so I removed the rack and Krausers. There is a possibility that the rack will return, but it will need to be chromed.

The throttle side Magura grip was cracked and brittle and already breaking apart in places so I replaced it with the brand-new one that I had laying around. The Fiamm horns are certainly better as warning devices, but I did not like the prominent mounting arrangement on the down tubes. Alternate mounting or a stock horn is being contemplated….overall, things are cleaning up nicely.
