A great looking trio, Dave.
Hard to believe an 80,000 mile bike could look so good. Beautiful!

Dave:

Actually I mis-identified your bike in it's prior life a few weeks ago. This is indeed the 80K bike. The 'before' of your '80 is worse, sorry to say. I'll try to dig up those photos.

Hello, legoscbx! Welcome to the ICOA forum! :text-welcomewave:

I assume the CB1100F parts you used came from a Canadian spec bike.. 8)
