The tank is now straightened up and ready for dull chrome. The bottom had to come out which is just as well as it was full of all sorts.

You wheels are currently with the wheel builder and will hopefully be rebuilt with galvanised spokes.

At present the bike is completely stripped and the identification is being worked on. Parts and their existence are now being researched, things like the headlamp, front number plate brackets, rear number plate and centre stand. A lot of these parts will need to be re-produced.

JAL Restorations are currently working on the bike for us and Steve from JAL has managed to find an of a trials 85. The lights are not standard but you can see the headlamp brackets, rear plate and centre stand.
