Re: 1988 Auburn CR-16R

Thank you guys for all the nice comments. It took me like 8 months to gather all the right parts. Then I took it over to Johnny at True Torch welding here in California for the "shrinking". And the outcome well here she is. I thank my friends Johnny (True Torch WFO), Bill (silverhw), Kevin (Kristevin), Drew (pandaproam), Joe (JB Cycles), Jeff (cruiserking), Roger Durham (Bullseye cycles).

Re: 1988 Auburn CR-16R

Beautiful bike there, very cool shrinking job.  I usually send mine to Borneo and let the witch doctors take care of mine, but yours ended up a lot cooler than anything I have gotten done.  Kudos to the people that helped you on this project too.
