After searching the country for a good base for a restoration, I managed to persuade another fellow Fizzy enthusiast to part with his basket case. Once I got it home in the boot of my car (all in bits), I was gobsmacked that the wife said to rebuild it in the dining room as it was Jan/ Feb when I got it home.
Not to question her suggestion (bless her), I set upon loosely assembling it with help from a mate (Tinny) to find out what and how many parts I had to purchase. I have bought a lot of items from Andy at Webbs of Lincoln – who has been very helpful – and other parts off the internet. The bike has had a complete overhaul – every bearing, seal, most nuts and bolts replaced with genuine, new old stock parts. My aim was to have it ready for the Brighton Fizzy run in May. I achieved that but there were a few parts I wanted to change. The only downside now is that it’s been banished to the garage.
