I like the razor cut along the handle bar to get the foam off. I think a Confente tribute bike will reap all the accolades you deserve. I'll kick in $5 just to see it.

Winner winner chicken dinner. I can't make it out but it looks like an SR Royal stem? Fluted? Add the bars, the high flange hubs...I'll bet that's going to be a fine bike.
