Will post the final pics once I get the last remaining parts next week.
Agree 100%.I recently refreshed a Honda 50 for a neighbour.His aul fella bought it new in 86 to use for going to work and when he retired for tipping around.It sat for years after he got too old to ride it.When he died aged 93 his son dragged it out.I asked him about the tired paint but he insisted it be left as found and I have to agree,it's part of the history.
Nice job on the James,I have a 51(ish)Captain,it's on the list
