June 2016 Bike of the Month

Sorry for the delay this month, I was overseas and did not have access to a decent internet connection.

I have never met this months winner so I don't know him personally. But I have to conclude that he is one of the most determined members on this Board. Look at the before and after pics of his bike and see if you agree.



Congratulations JonHawaii, your "other" 1983 V65 Magna is June 2016's Bike of the Month.

Check out Jons post in the Restoration section.

Jon & All,

What I find amazing about this machine is the contrast between the before and after images.

The condition, as Jon received, it is so appalling that I would never have considered even trying to save it, however Jon did it.

Kudos to you Sir from me for what you had the guts to do for this one.

Thank you. I have an obsession.... um I mean a passion for these bikes. I love building things and figuring things out. And, as I have mentioned before, there is nothing like riding a bike you built.  :thumb
