The stuff coming out of Mooneyes is interesting as always. Japanese attention to detail is fascinating. Some of the paint is just unreal. In terms of stripping etc. they are genuinely starting to do "us" better than us. I was fascinated by the finishes on this bike. All the chrome is done to the hilt but lots of the aluminum stuff is instead done flawlessly satin.

The MCM label on the fork covers is flown Minnie Pearl style so you know it's the real thing. It's always cool to see bikes that are perfectly period correct and I love seeing funky oddball NOS parts but the "Bates label" status stuff makes me a nauseous.
