‘48 500

Postby Dave.Thomas » Sat Feb 16, 2019 1:28 pm

Been building this up over winter, was a 350 but now has 500 internals . Not standard obviously but built to look good and go well, both of which I’ve achieved ( to my own satisfaction anyway !)

It is looking very good, I like that black exhaust pipe.

Hi Dave

Jeez, that looks sweet...
I know the location too! Tanworth in Arden. I photo'd my bikes there also, but not as well as you!
