Thanks for the encouraging words fellas.
Here's a few pics.
The fibreglass tank/side covers and that strange looking seat will be discarded.
The back mudguard looks suspect too.
Sadly, this bike's been left out in the weather for some time.
Most of the frame rust is surface and should clean up ok.
The only area of concern for me is the bolt area around the rear guard bracket/plate.
RH side fins look ok.
LH side fins look ok.
Check out the side stand mount.
When I got her home I flicked it out and leant her over, the u-bolts rotated on the frame and she crashed into my thigh. I nearly went down on day 1 without even throwin' a leg over her.
On a more serious note - I don't like the look of those rust stains around the inspection holes.
Apart from some of the fork internals, I'll probably only use the LH slider for the new disc front end.
Someone tried to take the head off but couldn't do the pushrod shuffle.
It's a worry - because the motor's seized.
They also "misplaced" the Amals and headsteady.
Any Aussies out there know of an oil tank restoration/modification service here in Oz ?
Similar to what Colorado Norton Works offer ?
