    Next project on the go, its all there and even has the original Dunlop rims that will go off to be chromed along with the rest of the parts, collecting a few parts at the moment and will strip it down over the next few weeks :)

    If someone just wanted a cheep rider and didn't mind the rust, oil leaks and brushed paint then it would have done the job proudly but that's not for me :)

    Started work on the seat pan as its an original seat pan but has been previously repaired in a bit a get you home way with a plank of wood and some screws lol, going to sand blast it then re weld it properly and fill all the holes with weld and make like new before painting.

    Lol, a weak point on the 69 year only seat was the grab rail is bolted to the seat and could eventually cause the rear of the seat to fail, should have it looking like new in a few weeks :)

    At last some free time spent striping the last bits and sorting it all out, hope to get the parts off for plating this week.
