It has taken me about 6 months to transform what was a sad and shabby looking vehicle with many parts missing into what you see here now. It is far from perfect, particularly if you look carefully. Remember digital cameras often lie, particularly on Ebay!
It is a budget refurbishment to achieve a tidy, safe and reliable machine that I can potter around country lanes on.
The seat looks a bit strange. I don't like it. It is a pattern part and as soon as I learn how to weld and re-cover seats it will be replaced by a refurbished original. I have two more of these bikes in the garage awaiting treatment so if you have any spare parts you don't want, let me know. I would be particularly interested in an engine, mudguards for the four speed model, rear swinging arm or a good seat or seat base.
The refurb can be seen on the sport moped site (link on this blog) if you are interested in an old man's pain and suffering.
NO MORE BORING THAN MANY ANOTHER BLOG
No, not your blog of course. I concede that your posts are succinct, insightful, humorous and well worth reading. That is why I would appreciate it if you could spare a moment to cast your eye over my efforts and let me know how I can encourage people to read it. On the other hand it may be the most boring blog, someone's has to be.
