Wow, has it ever been ridden? That thing is clean!
How’s the front brake working? Seems like the straddle cable is short. I am used to seeing the arms angled out at maybe 45 degrees or so.

The photo is a bit deceiving but yes a bit shorter than I would want. Based on bench testing should still be OK to send me over the bars.
