    Re: Mustang Build Finished

    Thanks everyone! the hold up on these bikes is getting parts Cadmium plated, not many do it anymore, we have a guy in FT. Worth, but it takes awhile.

    we have started a new one, it will be a 1963 Thoroughbred, these have spoke wheels and shocks.

    These fender braces are Cad plated.

    Re: Mustang Build Finished

    Pretty impressive. I knew it would bring big cash. I had a Major who worked for me in MOSOD at Pentagon. He was into restoring Mustang bikes and Honda Trail 70 /90s.


    That's some fine work. Sorry about your brother, I'm sure you both enjoyed working together on the bikes.
