New Wheels

Found a replacement for the old 83 V-65 Magna:
The 84 Honda V65 Sabre.
This one isn't mine, but is a dead ringer, color and all. The old bike is now a spare parts collection, it having the same engine, and many other parts in common. Or maybe someone out there wants a rocket ship project bike. The old bike goes like Jack-the-Bear, but really needs a new frame to replace the one the previous owner before me bent, just enough to eventually bring on widespread cracking. Can it be ridden? Yes. I rode it to work today. Should it be ridden? Probably not. Helps if you have a welding machine.
