    I am in Pittsburgh and I’m just starting my ’82 Heritage rebuild, your bike looks great. My buddy wants to do it up Steeler style.. I’m going to go with a 4″ extended swingarm not a hardtail.

    BTW: are there any local shops for pipes etc.. that you guys would recommend?

    Would look way better if you through on some spoke rims. Also maybe make your own seat. One that your not falling off the back when your riding. You must be hooking those forward controls the hole time. just give it a little flip at the end. LOVE the paint job.

  7. bykerbrad says:

    I know you had this bike for sale on craigslist a bit ago, wondering if you sold it or not. If not, I might be interested. I don’t know how else to get a hold of you but through this site. If you get this message hit me up. My name is Brad, email is btbergamasco@hotmail.com. I am a pittsburgh native as well.
