    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 :)

    It looks like an amazing project. I look forward to seeing it completed. It sure isn’t even close to being as rough as some of the bikes I am seeing.

    I always try and make sure that the bike has as many original parts as poss Charley so i can replate or paint as pattern parts are rubbish today pic's make this hand painted beauty look far better lol, if you go back to page 2 in this section you will find the T100C we did earlier in the year as well.

    Thanks Charley and if i have inspired you then my job is done :) The nice thing is you have a far better choice of bikes in the US than we do in the UK and way cheaper along with parts as well, wishing you well in your search.
