History
Bought abused as a trail bike in 1976, running on one carb, first gear done , leaky forks , BSA pipes and speedo , no badges but running. fixed the obvious and rode it. 1979 while unenployed I spent 10 dollars on black and blue paint and made it look respectable. Motor overhauled in1986. It seized momentarily at first five mile mark. Cooled down , started and drove it till about 2000 . Needed a clutch. Parked it for yearsin my garage. I rode my Norton. In 2010 I took it ALL apart and the rebuild began as time and money allowed.
