Hello'

have just joined the club, after purchasing, what i think is a d14, although engine number is 04204 and says b14, i am based on anglesey, north wales and bought the bike, after seeing it on my local market, it has no clutch cable and no battery, but someone has spent a lot of money on new parts, and have been told the engine has been rebuilt.

any advice on what to check etc, before i start it would be appreciated, also do you normally use a richer mixture, when first starting, i put one of these together when i was sixteen, but that was when noah was a lad!!

Thanks in advance Dave

ps trying to put a picture on, but can't do it, think it's my age
