1955 James Cadet Project SOLD

Not for sale - it has been sold via a Car and Classic Free Ad
This James is an unfinished project. I bought it about three ago to restore but my ageing years and my struggle with arthritis has forced me to part with the bike. The James is a 150cc 1955 Cadet model J15 with original frame and engine numbers, this model is quite scarce as it was only made for one year. It comes with its original instruction Book and spare parts book list. The bike is currently on SORN. It has its original registration number which is 873YUB. I took lots of photographs of the bike when I bought it which are are in a folder to help with the restoration.
Some work has been done, the engine has new rings and primary chain but gaskets and oil have not been done and the head is not tightened down. Some gaskets are included. Hard to source original James tank badges, chain guard and fork grease nipples come with the bike. The previous owner had the chain guard, levers and handlebars chrome plated. The wheels look in reasonable condition to me and need one spoke which is missing. I would love to see someone with more energy than me to take on this project.
