Hi, that's superb, can I ask one question, what year is it, there's conflicting markers in my head, and I can't put my finger on it. I'm guessing 1954. But that Sun TT is stunning, It's one of my dream bikes, one day ! Excellent provinance with that serial number. Terry

My dad had a Manta A. It had white flip flop paint so had very subtle hints of pink and green when the light caught it. He loved it and kept it in immaculate condition. My grandad had a stunning early Manta B (chrome bumper era) in metallic blue. Always wanted a nice Manta since but the wife is not keen, she'd rather have a Beetle....

Anyway I've got a similar project....well when I say similar it's old and will be the same colour (similarities pretty much stop there). Debating whether to fit guards and what colour to have.
