As you all may know I got myself a 51 KH in March last year, Which was somewhat missing alot of parts. I spent the rest of the year gathering parts up. Then lockdown came along so I thought I better make a start although still missing alot of parts. What I didn't have I made from scratch. Repaired what I did or I modified other parts into the right ones. Weeks of welding and metal bashing then painted the lot. It's all going back together now. And somewhat looking like a bike.

I think you will find it quite a nice bike in a lot of ways. They are very easy to start due long kicker and being a 500 twin with auto advance. I have a similar with Anstey rear end but I've not ridden it far and noticed it wasn't really good balance as far as the motor was concerned, so I will do the lot one day. Meanwhile don't need another bike in pieces to add to those already in that condition. It had standard bores without being resleeved so I'm hoping it's generally good. Regards Nev
