I have been restoring this bike for about five years now, so I thought you might want to see what can be achieved and feature it in the next issue. I went for something a bit different, the tank and forks were replaced, as the old ones were shot, new side panels purchased, frame and swingarm shot-blasted and powder-coated in red (the purists might not like it), the engine was inspected, cleaned and painted in high-temperature matt black paint, Giannelli exhaust, full working power valve fitted.

It’s been painted by myself, so it’s not perfect but it’s OK for now. Still, it’s a real head-turner and gets comments where ever it goes. I am just starting my next project which is a TZR-based special with a YZF-R125 front and rear-end grafted on in Kenny Roberts style yellow and black paintwork will send some pictures when that’s finished!

Take a look:
