It's funny, I was scanning back through this thread and found this post (from 11-17-12). I actually was the one that bought that bike and absolutely love it. I am also going to do a few upgrades, but want to keep it as close to original as possible. BL's are kind of a cult and I'm glad to be part of it.

As you should. They are becoming quite the commodity and hard to find unless you are of taller stature.
