    Here is a recently acquired Manxman. Will be looking for the missing parts if any one is holding, just located a front guard. This bike has been sitting since 1969, surprisingly the motor spins freely. I will be performing a mechanical restoration only as original paint means more to me than anything. It still has it's original Pipes with the kink for the Tach Cable.

    Nice fine , I have one I got cheap in boxes and is now a long term project but most orginal parts missing so am building mine as a caferacer the blue frame paint was so far worn I have resprayed it black and the motor is no matched numbers but not far off.
    Anyway good luck with it and have fun fixing it, do you know why it was sat up for so long if it sat up since 69 means not many years on the road, I been looking for a orginal fuel tank for mine as mine came with a never used alloy tank, finding a orginal one is hard, lots of copy Atlas tanks around from India, won't be going down that road.

    Great fine, Ashley
