'73 ladies SS

I still have another 10 hours or so to put into it....Keeping Kurt in mind I left a little 'patina' up front.

Verrrry nice. If I knew you liked them, I would have put you in contact with a local fellow here who had a '66 ladies' Super Sport Tourer in Violet.

I have the blue mens SS and would love to get a womens SS for my wife. I saw one (blue) at a LBS but a sweet young lady was looking at it, she asked my opinion on it and I just couldnt hold back, told her everything! She practically had to slap me to shut me up! So I was surprised when she slipped me a piece of paper with her name and number on it when her dad wasnt looking! I threw it out when I got home as 1: Im a married man and 2: I have kids her age! but it did make an older man like myself feel great!

If you look closely at mine you will see I converted the rear brake to a standard women's side pull. I could never get the involved cable arrangement on the rear to work correctly. If I had it tight enough to work the rims rubbed and if I set it so the rim had clearance the brakes would bottom before being applied. I like my wife so I put a side pull on it and that seems to work well. Roger
