My first MB. i knew about the kits and over a week planned "the build" My buddy and I drove to canadian tire first thing on a rainy saturday morning to pick up the bike, a 70th anniversary supercycle. The kit was paid for a week later and 2 weeks after that it had been assembled. I rode one tank of gas through it and became an enthusiast. I have to go over it all sometime this summer to give it a really good solidifying.
