Just a quick few points while I think of it. The bike is very low mileage and the engine cases had never been split when it came to me...they still have not been split but I did give her a re-bore with new piston. The primary inspection cap had corroded so I had to take apart the primary side to drill it out and replace. The wiring was original but very perished so the copper was visible in many places, I replaced it all with black rubber to match. The carb body had started to corrode badly but I manged to find a new one which I fitted. I probably had the magneto reconditioned but I cannot remember for sure. The story was that she had been used up to the war and then put in a shed during fuel rationing and only came out to move into the owner's bedroom where it stayed until he went into an old folks home and I was offered it by the family. We put fuel in her and she fired right up!...not bad for what was supposed to be over fifty years...all the lights came on but the battery was long past useable so now has a solid state one inside the shell. I rode her down to the Colombres rally in Spain and she then came on to the Cammy Rally in Tolosa as a back up machine. I think that she still has all the original control cables, she is a really nice bike with patina to die for so please try and ensure that she is never 'restored'! I am sure that you will be pleased as she is probably the most original VB of her era.
