Re: 1979 S&S Newport 26

thanks. I was planning on putting my nos black panaracers which are now on it for riding purposes then i saw the snake belly's pop up on CL so i had to get them but i think i am liking the panaracers more so i may off the snake belly's for the right amount of jack or just put them on when i show it.

Pretty sure this bike is hanging from the ceiling of College Cyclery in Sacramento.  It's perfect from every angle.  Damn nice--gave me a high bar for my S&S build!
