    Looks sweet. I see the single tracks have aged to that nice bronze color. The same with mine

    nice old school ride. I always wanted a blue M1 could never afford one at the time. Its funny how the geometry of the bikes has changed over the years. I used to think the m1 was pretty slack in the head angle but looking at your one its nowhere near as slack as modern bikes.
