Here is the other one. Looks an easier proposition for getting it on the road.

Interesting that the Mk1 has a black clutch cover. Looks in pretty original condition to me.
cheers

The fuel tank on the Mk11 doesn't look big enough - or is it my eyes?

My first thought was "That's a BSA tank", something doesn't look right.

I don't know - I think it might be the standard tank. The chrome is very misleading - you can't really see the curves.

Looks like 18" rims too...Borrani?..........A65 brake has got to be a useful improvement.
