Found the bike on Instagram. It was located in upstate NY and I didn’t have a clue who the seller was so I ended up flying over to pick it up. Rented a van in Brooklyn and drove up to Rochester to pick it up. Had a great time up there with the guy selling it. It turned out Brooklyn Invitational was the same week and that a whole bunch of the lads were going so had an awesome time there. It was far from original so I saw it as a once off chance to go nuts without ruining an original bike. Got it home to Denmark November 2016 so this year, 2017 was my first year on the bike. Rode all around Europe this summer and clocked a good 10000 km’s on it. Very much in love with it:)
