This is a 40+ year old build.  This was a yard sale item and the decals were nasty, so it was built as a "streetable" version.  Unfortunately the rubber belt material has gotten dry rotted.and failed in the rear where it supports the spare tires.  Upon inspection, it is also rotted on the hood, but it molded itself to the painted surface and doesn't look so bad.  A little updating seems necessary for all our builds every now and then, doesn't it?

Very nice, would there be any interest in a thread for old builds I wonder? I have a few 30 year old builds, you probably wouldn't want to see them though! lol

Agreed. I have a 1983 build that is all original. I keep it as a lesson from history, as since its there's only one or two builds from that era that haven't been rebuilt.

Back OT, good job Mike. With those fuel tanks, it looks like a Paris- Peking race car or similar.

The Paris-Peking race is exactly what is was for.
