i've been mates with jon for a wee while now and i've offered to re-build his sex-one for him 8) the z2's need a full rebuild (new bushes & seals & springs are supplied) and painted along with the frame in ford diamond white :wink:

i opened this yesterday...........

it was like christmas for me :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

the forks are getting prepped for primer today at some point . i'm aiming for a 2 or 3 week build as i work between 5 to 7 days a week and some of you might know i've shattered my knee cap so standing around is hard :lol:

i've got to add , this is a great site , and for a member to send me what jon's sent me to build for him without knowing me shows a lot of retro love & trust thats in here :oops: i won't let you down mate :wink: your gona love it when it's finnished :D

this is what it was like before the paint was stripped > http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... ht=sex+one

I'd like one of these frames for a neo-retro build. The rear end is steel so a disk mount could be brazed on :wink:
