Nice Renovation. I'm doing one myself as well. I have a 1990's (early) Davidson Stiletto Criterium bike. Need to get it repainted, new parts and then probably going to ride that thing. Who did you talk to at Davidson. I tried to reach out but no response from them.

Why would he make you pay for it if he was just going to toss it?
But nice project.
My friend just did the same thing with the same frame in the same color.
