That's great, care and attention taken and, a re-occuring theme from me, not thrown £100s of NOS at it. Very well done and inspirational aswell.

Ordinary bike, Ordinary bits extra-ordinary build!!

bty Grimsby is in Lincolnshire :)

Well done that man a great restoration.

Hang back a week or two with '92 build though, i'm currently copying the 1992 alpinestars graphics. Once copied i'll pass them onto Gil.

a teeny criticism? that saddle may be comfy but its an eye sore. Try a turbo on there, at least for a pic.

I agree about the saddle, but when you get to a certain age i need comfort.

I do have 3 tiny jobs left, change the front brake blocks, get a decent saddle and find some dust caps for the cranks. i will add another picture when i have done the last 3 jobs.

Glad you like it though.
