To start with I won her from eBay on
a Sunday evening after a few red wines. I live in Kent and believed the bike to be nice and local in Swanley just up
the road! I arranged to collect from the guy advertising the bike the next morning only to realise the bike was actually in Swansea in Wales!
Ha ha! Still, it now seems all worth it, I am very pleased how she has turned out.
I have been right through the bike and was pleased to find the bores had never been re-bored, so I bored them to first over-size and had the crank rebuilt by Bob Farnham. Exhausts are from Higgspeed who have superb service. I still have the standard pipes as well. Thanks to Rob for all the help!
