    Original is always original, but custom never die.This car is mild custom, i like that. Cars located in Finland.

    Totally agree with updating the steering and brakes. Heidts make some good stuff. I looked at them before deciding to get my M2 custom made to my ride weight, height & geometry. More expensive option but should give good results.
    Increase the power then you need to increase the safety.
    A custom is about being laid back and enjoying the ride nice and easy like. Your bird in the middle of the benchseat.

    Dont get me wrong i have old manual steering in my 52 and its a fun drive. But you need to be on point so much more and if you are driving all day or through bad weather it can be tiring.
