92' Volcan

And here it is...... some minor problems ... blinkers are coming off (two are busted off and the other two are hangin on by wires.) speedometer is gone too. front brakes are locked up so I pulled them for now till I can get back to work on them. rust in gas tank and carb are rusted but don't think thats going to be much .... hopefully when I get back from little rock I can get straight to work on it.
