I ride this thing far...and all the parts have a nice rider patina to them...the chrome is original and looks really nice...the fork had the original decal on it..so i matched the frame decal to it...those white with black shadow i guess were only on 83 bikes, (according to resident Powelite guru BWHEELS)....so the decals are wrong...but i dont care!!!!!!!!!!!
