Sweet Baby James



Welcome to the world, sweet baby james. Your new owner might re-name you, but for now, you know who you are. I tried striping this like the original Newport, but I have the hands of Michael J Fox, so that didn't work out. Perhaps I could do it with tape, but I can't really pull good tape lines either. Oh well. It is quite blue. You should have seen it before all the black and chrome went back on. For now it will sit in my basement and wait a few more weeks for some friends to come visit and help me carry it and hopefully 3 more out. I'm starting on the teal one today. Kind of less exciting to put them together when you are just going to look at them instead of ride.

My current Maxi build is this SAME color... except my accents are all white. It will be done in 2-3 weeks. I live up in Springfield, MA.
