    Well I am glad to report my bike arrived,  a photo was taken so I will have a before and after photo,  it was in that lovely Brown colour that most of you love but with a record of one owner and only 5500 on the clock then it shouldn’t be to hard to get it to a decent standard, so it got stripped and the first bits of powder coat have now returned so the rebuild begins

    That is a great bike to start with and fantastic progress so far Squadronleader. I do look forward to seeing the progress.

    well started putting on a few bits on, engine in, waiting for the engine side panels from polishes, and chrome bits, just stripping what’s left of the old lacquer ready for polishing,  powder coating some by TJ wheels in Cradley.

    Now waiting for parts from KK which are on their way.

    That’s fast progress and looking really good so far. It is quite surprising at times just how much a coat of paint can make such a difference. Can’t wait to see the tank, panels and tailpiece.

    We managed to get some bling back yesterday,  polished engine cases and rebuilt wheels in stainless,  have sent original rims to the chromers as they say they can be rescued, installed wiring loom and rear brakes,  will do a couple of more parts today.

    Polished by imperial polishers Stourbridge.

    She is coming along well and looking very good mate. I am really impressed with the quality and the progress. Hopefully it won’t be long now before we see her running again.

    its coming along, but the bad news is now Chrome wont be ready till end of May due to work load in factory, good news is wont be able to do much after next week due to my op, so timing is not too bad..
