I tricked out a 42 year old bike last summer. A 1972 Finnish Tunturi City bike, I did a custom copper paint job and all new everything, rims, tires, extra wide handlebars. My neighbor gave me the rust bucket when he moved, and in a couple weeks of restoration I had this...

I would name your new (old) bike Christine because I'm sure its probably haunted or at least possessed and are you sure beyond any and all doubt that he wasnt killed while riding this bicycle?!

gaah.gif I had to sell it, hard up for cash at one point. I regret that, as you know, that had a playability second to none.

bummer we've all been there . I just had to get rid of two of my babies, my dimebag "from hell" and my vendetta ... that Gibson was amazing such great action and cleanest pickups ive heard on a production guitar ...so sweet . I was greatful to get to use it at a couple shows when my 7 string les paul was down ( gone too) what a great guitar it was , a moment of silence for our lost friends in the hands of other players .......cheers.gif

I've been playing this 1984 heavily modified Ibanez Roadstar II for a few years now, it was actually made in Japan and came from the same factory where they made the Japanese Stratocasters, the neck and frets are identical.
I got a new mother of toilet seat pickguard and dropped an overwound humbucker in the bridge, it screams.
