  • Checked  frame and engine , definitely a B3

  • Rides really  well , starts super easy on kick or button , sits really happy at 75mph will do much more but best there .Have got dyno report for single carb set up and it is only 4-5 hp down on original spec power so all in all pretty good.Just getting all bits together to do double disc conversion .

     

    Seat is original recover as Kaptainkwak…[Read more]

  • It is an import from US , 1978 Model , import document said B4 but other bits say B3 which would be correct for 1978. Been repainted since in UK hence paint job looks more like earlier models

  • got it perfect thanks

     

  • sorry to be a pain but can’t see a link ?

  • Hi , I saw this old post but nothing is attached to it in terms of instructions , I fancy adding a second front disc to mine  , have you still got instructions ? which calipers and master cylinder was used

     

     

    thanks

     

    Steve

  • Looking good , Mine only has the original  single front disc and am planning to convert to double , which front calipers did you use ?  are they off another model ?

     

    thanks

    yes , paint is like B2 , ,Odd the import paperwork said B4 but it is a 78 model and some of the other papers said B3 which I believe is correct . so yes electronic ignition works a treat , easy start kick or button .Single carb seems good so far , running a bit rich but easily sorted . My last one had the twin carbs, think this one had the…[Read more]

    • Yes, it’s the same as mine, same colour, although I’m changing it to red. B3 was the 78 model year, it has quite a few changes compared to the B1 and B2. The B4 was 79 and has four pinstripes on the tank. I’m going to keep the twin carbs on mine, they will be fully reconditioned. Neither the B3 or 4 were sold in the UK.
      Cheers,

    It is a US Spec 1978 B3 , you are correct the silencers are Marvings , they fit a treat and sound great .Other mod it has had is a 2 into one manifold and a single Mikuni Carb fitted . Plan to rechrome the down pipes too

    • I wondered because the tank looks like it’s been finished as a B2, the striping is different on the B3. Mine’s a 78 B3 brought in from the US. I’m taking it to UK spec with the longer rear mudguard. I had a B1 from new in 76, sold it in 70 and also wanted another one. I’m looking forward to getting it on the road. I think I saw your’s advertise…[Read more]

    • Hi Steve. Looks like a very nice US spec B2? The silencers seem to be the Italian ones from Marving, supplied by WeMoto? I have bought those to fit onto my 78 B3 currently being restored by Mavericks.
