I guess that's why my byline says 'What ... leave it standard??!!'I actually WAS riding the wheels off the SF. The problem was to get control over suspension and braking performance while keeping the bike as original as possible. I restored with the aim of keeping it original. I was just not happy with the performance of the original brakes and suspension. To avoid having the next modified bike in my garage, I sold it to someone who said he would appreciate the originality. He faced the same issues and sold the bike on 2 or 3 years later (asking me first if I want to buy it back. I was temped for a moment but backed out of it...).
