Here are a few poor pics I took after Tom and I dropped her off at the Houston. She's a 1972 gt 550. Be nice she's in need of some TLC and seems like she gets offended by negative comments about her. (typical overly sensitive woman...) The owner of the porky bike next to her has already her off and she has promised revenge.

this is what I'm hoping to get her to look like at some point but for now getting her running and street worthy is the main concern.

I'm keeping her white. I just wanted to show what these looked like when they came out.

Martin, I'll buy it from you for $325 when you decide Jody is right. But I hope Jody won't be right.
