What a beautiful specimen...
Like the rear disc brake feature. I just did a brat style recently.
It was a cool build discipline.

Pretty good deal! I got a pretty nice one in seattle for 750. Might want to not strap it down so hard next time you might blow your fork seals.

Ignore that guy, you are supposed to compress the forks when strapping it down. any less and it may be unstable. If that guy knew how these forks worked he wouldnt have said that, so don't worry, you won't blow fork seals that way. If they were air assisted forks, you should relieve pressure before strapping, but xs's arent air.
