Decided I would cobble together a bitsa for parts that have been sitting around in my store for a number of years. After a 6 weeks of playing around this is what I have finished up with, 1960 plunger frame fitted with a D5 175cc engine MOT tomorrow.DSCN4314.JPGDSCN4317.JPGDSCN4319.JPG

Thanks' Bart got a little carried away with the colour scheme and playing with the pin striping, influenced by the works colour scheme/design BSA used on there trials tanks with a modern twist to make it my own.

Just built it cos I could and thought it would be a good way to use up stuff that was lying around, think I may just sell it off though as I will ever ride it in anger and I have lots more projects that need funding,1953 D1 plunger in for blasting and powder coating at the moment which will be the next one to be rebuilt.

Well it passed but do need to sort out the horn properly need a good loud 6 volt AC one.

Thought I had better get the reg documents in order if I do come to sell it so sent off the V5c with the change of engine and colour, still had it as being green and the original engine number the bike was dispatched with, I always include a photograph of the changes to prove they have been done, seems to work as never had any problems in the past, Wonder if the DVLA will be able to cope with two changes at once though. That just leaves the change to historic when I come to tax it for the first time.
