Thought id do a quick write up about me/my bike.
From london, Help out in my dads workshop doing mainly 'cafe racer' style bikes but everything from harleys to race bikes.
There was a guy working in the arch next door a few years ago and he was forced to shut up his business (london rent cost...)
Anyway he had this bike and wanted rid so i got it for a great price. run an rode but needed a few parts.
He wasn't 'mechanically minded' shall we say and the bike didn't run great after sitting for a few years. we decided to check timing and turns out he fitted electronic ignition which isnt working correctly an i want to replace... ive wrote a separate post in the help section.
Anyway so this is the bike! MGF595
wondered if anyone knew of this bike or could tell me anything about it? like all the little facts...
John budgen told me is a 51 engine and 51 frame but the bikes registered as a 56?
the first thing everyone says is "is that a old army bike" , i dont know so has someone just painted it that color or is there reasoning behind it?
sure ill learn a lot off here so thanks in advance
