So cool to see an old-school get a new-shcool make over and continue to be riden.  The tennis ball is a very nice touch.

Very nice and unique OS + MS 87 Osborn Pro!
Never heard of KORE ZERO forks but looks like a perfect fit.
I would use an ACS rotor and channel the brake cable thru the gusset hole but that's just me. wink
It BUGS me to not use that built in feature.  lol

Thumbsup for the BUILD and if you are still looking for decals, try:

Great bike, and so cool that you're still riding it - the vintage front sprocket is a nice touch cool

Seems only fitting that they were taken there. When I was a kid, my family and I flew from Edmonton to LA, and the first place I made them take me was Huntington Beach. Lucky buggers that get to live there. It's snowing right now in Edmonton.
