The bike starts easily and runs fine. The engine runs quiet with no rattles / knocks or smoke. The previous owner rebuilt the engine and it has stood unused. I was told that it has been fitted with a new old O.S barrel but cant warrant this as I have no reciepts . However I have looked into the plug holes and can see brand new pistons with STD stamped clearly on the top with no carbon. The clutch and gearbox both work well. Dynamo charges as it should, magneto gives a good strong spark.
Since I have took the pictures I have replaced kickstart shaft /quadrant and kickstart and pin.
Cosmetically there are a lot of stainless parts and the chrome is excellent. Paint on the tank isn't to good,it really needs replacing with the correct tank with chrome side panels. These can be bought for around £250. It has all the correct switchgear and the correct smiths clock. Tin ware solid, seat good. V5C in my name.
I have took 36 pictures and the detail is good and if you click on the link below you can look in my shoebox and make your own mind up as this forms part of my description.
