Thank Stephen, I'm not looking for a mint original bike, I'd like to have one and I understand that customizations have to be made to keep them on the road.
RWC, that wasn't the concern. The simple truth is that he'd rather impress a local collector than keep it in the family. It's really as simple as that. I've already confronted him about it.
So at this point, the only way to have one will be to buy my own.
