My father bought this bike in 1980. He rode it for a few months then it was stripped down to be restored. but this didn't happen.

It sat in boxes in the attic until last year when I started restoring and reassembling it.

It has been lovingly and carefully stripped. painted and polished to the best of my ability. There is still a little room for improvement.

I have ridden it round the yard. but it hasn't been on the road or taxed since 1980. I don't ride. hence the sale.

A lot of new parts have been fitted including seat. nbsp;exhausts. silencers. exhaust clamps. nbsp;coil. HT leads. plugs. plug caps. distributor cap. distributor sheath. nbsp;rotor arm. condenser. nbsp;battery. speedo cable. horn. dipswitch. rear lamp unit. kickstart.
