Kuwahara "Laserlite" replica pit bike

I received this Frame set in pretty bad condition, it took alot of convincing to have it re-chromed. As bad as it was I kinda like the Original decals on there. Oh well,I finally worked up the courage and sent it out to Revcore Refinishing to have it chromed. Since I got it I knew I wanted to make it a Laserlite replica because of it oval tubing on the down tube and forks. I try to make it as close as possible to it with as many Kuwahara parts as possible. Really happy with the way everything came out. Still tweaking the cranks a bit, have to polish the pedals, and waiting for the seat decals but its finally finished!
