Finished this up today, second of these kits I've built, probably the last.  Very fiddly construction, not many positive attachment points, vague instructions.  For bikes I think I'll go with a bit larger scales from now on.  Comments welcome, thanks for looking.

Great work!  Those ENTEX/Aoshima 1/16 scale vintage motorcycle kits date back to the early 1970's, and are NOT an easy build.  I have a 1975 copy of Scale Modeler magazine with a build article about the Ace 4-cylinder bike in that series.  The builder had a lot of trouble getting it together.

For inspiration:  here's Alexander De Leon's awesome re-work of that Harley kit. He replaced the wheel spokes with metal wire, and that was just the start.  He also scratch-built a rider figure, starting with a metal armature "skeleton."  His re-work is a Harley used by the US Army, when they were chasing Pancho Villa in 1916.
