1977 DG Racer

1977 DG Racer

Early DG Racer.

I have always loved the DG's.  I have been working on this one for awhile (picked up the frame 6 years ago).  Still a few pieces I want to switch, but I got the itch to actually build it a few weeks ago.

I say its a Racer 3 based on weight, but I am not 100% positive.

The original serial was lost when it was painted (before it came into my hands).

Thanks to all that helped with this.
