YES! She's running after 8 years of a very long stop/start restoration & ~40 years of being off the road.

Just a recap for those who aren't aware of the history - This wonderful little thing was bought by my grandad in 1967 & then ridden by my dad in 1971 when he was just 17. In the late 70s/early 80s it got laid up at the back of grandad's garage. Dad & I then found it under a tarpaulin leaning against his workbench after he passed away in 2008. I wish the pair of them were here to smell & hear the 2-stroke - I bet they'd have a few stories to tell!

Steve Hartley (not sure if he's on the forum) nipped round to help get her going. Cheers!
