Father had a brown 79 when I was a kid (12 years old) and unfortunately he sold it. Fast forward, I am now 49 years and just purchased a 1980 green one in what I feel is in pretty good shape. I am going to restore it and have already learned a lot from this forum.

I had the blue cvz-18 at this year's meet, it is in several photos from the event.   It underwent a full restoration several years ago, and much if that work was documented on this site.  Feel free to ask questions.  Welcome and good luck on your project.

So I have needed Hatch bolts coming as I was missing one but one of the things I would like to find is the rear chrome vents!! I have looked here and it seems finding them is difficult. Does anyone have a source or know of a repro. I have also reached out to the guy in Germany for re produced Carlson badges but have not heard back from him.
