Feedback required on my project

Hi Guys,

I'm mid way through restoring a 1987 Kuwahara Bravo Pro, I'd appreciate you having a look and giving me some criticism or advice.
This is my very first build, what's your thoughts?

Re: Feedback required on my project

Thanks man, I was nervous as hell posting it. I didn't think anyone would like it. Should be finished next week, just waiting for delivery of a few bits.
What do you think about decals, leave them off?

Re: Feedback required on my project

My only other feedback other than it looks great is to stop using BUILD as a noun.. big_smile

Please yourself, that's who you are building the bike for. BTW, the bike looks really good.
