Looks like a nice bike to me and I be happy to ride it if it were my size.

Paint looks like a very pretty blue and the paint is shiny. Thick paint? Probably a little thicker than original but sure looks nice.

The extra braze ons would have been a nice thing back in the day. Looks like it has all its original parts too. I wouldn't change a thing. Not all bikes need to be set back to original... just my opinion.

(Maybe Bruce's post was tongue in cheek and I missed the point?)
