how come all these K models are coming out of the woodwork? Not that I'm complaining, mind.
Shoot, a man could have a good weekend in Dallas with all that stuff...

Looks like a great time ahead with a sponge and some soapy water!

It will be interesting to see what it looks like under all of the dust, and hopefully it will have protected the finish somewhat.

It looks like it has been taken some way away from stock - will you be restoring, or just get it running and enjoying?

I would say that with a period custom like that, as good as it appears to be on first glance, keep it the way it is; but if you restore it, don't put new paint on old custom parts, go for a restoration

I luv it !! I don't know where the K's are coming from either. In the past year, I have seen 6 within a 50 mile radius of me. Pa
