  1. I appreciate all the replies. I will keep it as is. The only real bad part is the front fender where it bent and blew the paint off. I'll just repaint that fender and order the new stickers set. I like those camo bikes. This is sort of where I was coming from. There isn't any more info out there on this but it's cool...
  2. I have a bit of work to do on my bike. It is inside and slowly coming apart. I will be putting it on the road this spring, I'm thinking I want to paint it or maybe camo. I think it would be less desirable and a little more secure when parked rather than an obvious collectable bike. I'm sure it will drop the value significantly but I plan on keeping it and using it for another 45 years. Aside from a few new parts and an oil leak fix, I'm just basically cleaning and lubing it. Making sure everything is in good shape. So, anyone want to talk me out of painting it?

    Vintage yes, but it is a rider.Still runs great after 45 years. I have it layed up right now for new tires and tubes. new cylinder and head gaskets. New points and maybe a coil. It stalls after a puddle. I found the rear brake shoes fell off the backing plates. I replaced them too. Going to go on the road legal this spring after 4 years of bombing around the back woods. Best bike I have ever owned. My first one was in the mid 80's. The chain came off and wrapped around the front sprocket cracking the left side cover. I got rid of the bike instead of repairing it. Took 10 years to find another good one. I won't let this one go.
