image.jpegimage-1.jpegHi All,

thought you might like to see my latest restored effort,bought this a few weeks ago in a very sorry state,rotten wheels,perished tyres,rusted everything you know the drill,so renewed only what couldn't be saved restored everything else,rebuilt engine of course although it wasn't as bad as I feared,rebuilt wheels with new rims n spokes and powder coated hubs,resprayed tinware in candy red ( nearest match ) re upholstered seat and some re chroming,just waiting for number plate then a full shake down run,just rode it around my road all seems well,happy days!

Thanks,I'm lucky to have great contacts for chroming and powder coating who do my stuff very quickly.

Many thanks,I sold one a year or two ago and regretted it as I think the sport is the prettiest of all the Bantams so looked for a suitable project and was fortunate enough to find this one,glad you like it

cheers Digby

I agree with the others that you've done a really nice job there, don't forget the speedo cable though! Just kidding.

Four now on the road and at least several in bits.
