Ok so it's not all NOS parts LOL.....and it's not even all ERA specific! But the whole build cost about 50 bucks....JUST got it running this weekend when I acquired a 15 year old GYRO and cables....LOL...

Still needs back pegs thin enough to clear under the rear platforms....

Will be getting white tires, white grips, and some other nicer parts as I feel like dumping money....but for now? I plan to RIDE the HELL out of it!



These two are from this afternoon and evening....first smooth decade pulled in YEARS!
And 1 hand 1 foot elephant....

Great to see any old bike being put back to good use.

GREAT!

Lol. Yeah I'm only 5 foot 5. Which kept me from doing many tricks over the head tube
