This site is an incredible resource, thank you :!:

Picked this beauty up from a family member who had it in a garage for several years.

The carbs went to a pro and the tank was de-rusted (by myself) revealing about a half-dozen pin hole leaks. I had the tank (it looked fantastic but...) blasted to bare metal and did a POR15 liner treatment. I hope the liner wasn't a mistake but I want to use the original tank.

Working on getting the fuel flowing and proper sync.

Put the seat and side panels from my 550 spares on to get an idea how it might look.
Going to focus on getting it purring like a lion first.

Nice looking bike sprygurr, shame about those pinholes :cry: or you could've kept the original paint. Here is a picture of mine that was taken a couple of months ago.

Thanks sprygurr :) you may have noticed that I was in the process of swapping the spoked wheels for Comstars, that's why they are different. Also the clocks were being tidied up so weren't on, the carbs were also off as they were being cleaned for the 157th time :lol: Most of that has now been sorted but it came to a standstill while I built a shed 8)
