Nearly finished this one. It has been both rewarding and interesting working with a four stroke engine after the Lambretta. As I am a lot older and may I say a far bit wiser it amazes me how little maintenance I did back in 1976 when I had this bike as my only mode of transport. In the two or so years I drove this bike back and fo work and in to Swansea several times a week and never changed the oil nor the points. I am surprised it never let me down. It was parked out in all weather. I hope this little gem will be the same, although I will be looking after it a lot better this time. You never know it may get to 50 years old.

 

Now its 2013 and I ride this most days. I am like a child with a huge grin its not going to get me many speeding tickets but defiantly the most smiles per £. the bike cost me £245 in bits and I have spent £1000 on it so not to bad.

This winter I plan to have it re bored and may even paint the engine.
