Old Trail 55 I assembled from a box of parts. Gave it a patina, using muriadic acid and a salt water spray bath. Fabricated all of the custom parts using misc. items found in the spares bin. Just got it up and running about 2 weeks ago. I pushed the easy button and installed a 140cc Honda clone engine, which fit right in the vintage chassis.

Ha! I don't typically part with any of my bikes. I'm up to about 10 or so small little bikes this that I've restored/built over the years. Luckily they don't take up much room in the garage!
