1959 stu before and after

Postby Dave Beck » Tue Feb 26, 2019 4:10 pm

I just finished the 1959 STU this last week. I want to give a shout out to Mutt and Red Raven for the great parts and help they gave me during this rebuild. I just got to ride it a few blocks but everything seemed to work well, shifted fine and rode great. Mutt is a wealth of knowledge on these little bikes and I want to thank him for all the help and great parts he supplied me.

Posting a picture of the before and after of the bike. I know the purest won't like the color or the tank design but I built it for me and it suits me fine. Thanks again to everyone here and all the help I received.

Best regards,
Dave Beck

I kinka like that red between the blue and white. it makes the emblem pop. A few more little things and I'm ready to fire up the 48 as soon as it stops raining

Dave that is very nice ! I also like the red striping on the gas tank. I hope to finish my 59 someday but I'm trying to do the 48 first.
