It would be much more interesting if I could read and understand the language or translate it. Google did not offer me a translation.

Welcome aboard, Tom! Thank you for the link!

Thanks for sharing that Tom...Welcome to CH11 as well. I couldnt read it either but judging from what I see this is more of a Cafe' racer project than a restoration project. From the looks of it this is well done.
