Greetings from TX

Hey all,

Thought I'd tap into a community now that I'm coming to the limits of my abilities at the end of my Grand Prix project. Hope I can find some good support and resources for years to come!

Thanks for the warm welcomes. I'll be posting about it soon. It's not a typical restoration. I bought it after it was converted to an SS - and I like it that way. I made it my own bike, but just about all of the parts are original.
