You describe your bike with affection and pride, the work you've put into it, and one can infer from your post that it is a fine rider, then you ask about the quality level.....? If someone answers your question and posts that it is a lower level high production number, then possibly you will want to get rid of it? Just wondering.....

I'm looking for those pieces of junk that are great.
