Lovely machine, well restored.
It's cool to be able to fit modern transmission components on a 30yrs old frame which becomes virtually immortal!

I did not have to do that. It fits snug and no issues with shifting.

Replaced the stem and stem adapter with an Origin 8 stem adapter. Looks and feels much better now.

Fantastic looking build. I also had a great time restomoding my '87 Black Lightning. You just cannot go wrong updating a BL or keeping it all original for that matter!

Really lovely restomod, but dude, that threadless adapter + spacers + negative rise "pista" stem is killing me here

Yeah, I need to replace the stem adapter with a different one. Its sitting on my desk. Probably going on today. The guy that built it said the same thing. Thanks for the input.
