Isn't it a case of 'if it's your bike, do what you like'?

What happens when you choose to test the market is another matter.

"worms" mine's got boa constrictors.
I doubt there'd too many 100% original A7/10's left.
You can hide as much as you can or put it out there "look at me".

Seems there are the extremes, absolutely 100 point restoration to stretched out chopper, with infinite gradations in between. Takes me back to when my main ride was a '74 Bonnie. Every now and then, someone would have to point out my non-original master cylinder (Yamaha), added chrome, fenders, lack of sidecovers, '68 pipes and mufflers, Mikuni carbs, lights, etc. My standard response was "if Triumph built them so well, why are they out of business?" I say if the owner enjoys it, that's all that matters. If it's an improvement, then I want to learn how it's done and I may (funds allowing) do it as well.
