rode it to breakfast and stopped by the hardware store... the front brake master was all corroded and in need of attention so i wire brushed it mmasked, wiped with acetone, put a coat of zinc chromate on the bare aluminum and then hit it with some vht caliper paint...

i ain't no picasso but this ain't a show n shine either... its a daily rider...
