You have my sympathy - must be very trying having to put up that sort of machineryBut I did manage to do a couple of thousand miles this year on the real Vincents, and it was absolutely glorious!
Pumped those sumps dry just when needed.

Very nice score! Brand new.Picked up this little gem yesterday. 1983 DT 100 with 430 original miles. I've been looking for a pit bike to toodle around on at places like Barber and Road America and something to teach the grandkids how to ride on. Not perfect, but generally unmolested.
The other side has some issues. one of the PO's did some sort of tank liner and dripped it on the tank leaving a gouge in the paint. And the sidecover, (only one, on the left) needs paint. The rear fender has a couple of dents I'll have to pound out and repaint, but that's easy. Right now, Job 1 will be to clean the semi-clogged carb so it runs clean.Very nice score! Brand new.
Thank you Craig. Both for your kind comments and your generosity.Cliffa , your project turned into a great looking bike , sure hope it runs as well as it presents , good on you for getting it done in such a timely manner ! Hope you get out to enjoy it soonest ...
