There will be a bit of sympathy involved , the front cradle is staying as is , rear end will get cut off an replaced by a period reprop so it'll look like a proper factory hardtail .

for the front it'll again be reprop springers , after that running boards on the front and hopefully a full set of fishtails for the exhausts .

So nothing too radical
