The bike is not restored, it’s still got the original paint and chrome. There’s patina to the finish that doesn’t really show in the photo but if you look closely you will see it.
I know that these bikes don’t come up very often and good ones are getting pricey. I can be patient and wait for the right opportunity to come along. In the meantime I will keep an eye out and lurk here to gain as much knowledge as I can.
