It was said that this was a complete machine that needed minor restoration, however this was not the case and it quickly became apparent the several of the key components were either worn out or not present.
Like most basket case projects research was undertaken and information and parts gathered.
The motor was sent to notable Jap engine re conditioner Terry Doyle (Morgan 3 wheeler's) as he had the reputation of building nice strong Jap motors at an affordable price.
This is the motor we intend to run in the bike, so we will see !
A replacement gearbox was obtained as the original gearbox was running with absolutely no teeth on second gear, and the metal had formed a lapping paste inside the transmission which had gone through the bearings.
The wheels were pretty much worn out as were the headstock bearings and tanks were in pattern only.
We actually included the parts bike kits in our tally so these are not forgotten.
