My 84 build is finally done and ready to hit the streets just wanted to thank everyone that has helped with tips and answered sometimes obvious questions I couldn't of done it without you !
Really nice job! External forks springs look neat.
Imho would look better with a fender, but to each his own.
cool foot rest, chrome? where u get that?
Jmpb parts in holland only about 10 euros I've just had a look to send u link but looks like they only have in white at a glance at the minute I've had a lot from them but tend to do bulk orders as postage to the uk not cheap
I like the powdered spokes
Looks great! Almost to pretty to ride...almost! Have fun with it!
The die cable end makes the whole bike . ;)
Need some matching dust caps
Great bike Steve!
great job! alot of sweat, blood and grease go into making an old ped that nice.
Very true but so worth it
Bad Ass... color is awesome... Do they really make the license plates that large..?
Believe it or not that plate is illegal here in uk it should be an inch longer on each dimension but I agree does spoil the look
> Imho would look better with a fender, but to each his own.
Bike looks great! The spoked rims do look awesome. Super clean!
I have the same forks and the stock fender will in no way fit on those. It is off by a lot. New brackets would have to be made. I tried a couple
Different ones and could not figure out would would fork on those forks.
The chrome proma.is killer. Great touches. Very personal. Great build.
How do you mount a headlight on those ebr springer forks? Aren't those external springs just for show? Could you potentially remove them and use traditional headlight fork mounts?
I also absolutely love how you chopped the fender and rear rack, that is a style I've never seen before. Everyone chops the fender but the way you did that rear end looks GORGEOUS!
Also, how in the heck did you mount that seat? It's completely stiff right? I'm drooling
Yes the springs are just for show so I cut them down to fit around the light mounts
There is still the original spring beneath the seat I just cut around 2 inch off the original seat post part of the frame and using the piece I cut off I used as template to drill new holes, glad u like
That's lovely. Great job.
As a UK former Ciao owner (in 1986 for £25), this build looks great.

Further to Steve's answer, our registration plates on bikes is stupidly big, but so long as the correct sized font is used, the border around can be cut down to the legal minimum (6mm I think). (edited)
Really nice job!
It's great. I love it. I hope mine comes out as nice as yours.
