    Well first off, I like where you are going with the bike, stance is a little higher in the front then my taste, but it certainly works on this one.

    I have to ask the question though, as a piece of memorabilia from a recently deceased star of Prince's caliber, did you not consider selling it? Assuming you have the providence to demonstrate it's heritage, that bike would have been worth some serious money to a collector. Just wondering.

    Pretty sure it's a joke because the PR bike was a CM400, I think.
