When this ‘California’ arrived for recommissioning and attention to the cosmetics, it was immediately obvious that all was not what it seemed. The buddy seat, screen, panniers, high bars and and footboards give it much of ‘the look’, but the instruments, front/rear mudguards and the 1000cc motor are all from a Spada. The side panel tells the truth – almost. The frame is from a G5 or a convert!
The plan is to give her a thorough mechanical refresh, new paint and chrome, and a set of stainless guards to complete the Cali vibe.
The massive ‘bars (and half the switchgear!) are from a Cali 3.
