Stripped down with the right balance of chrome and paint gets it every time. Nicley done tank styling strip, and a genuine Bates saddle, with the man himself, Mr. Bob Bates in the center.
The custom nameplates in this add could have been used for neat gas tank styling strips. The Superior fork covers differ from the MCM type as they have a flair at the bottom. The Superior headlight brackets are unique as well and another part I would like to find.
