In parallel with my 1952 D1 I am also rebuilding a 1960 Royal Enfield 150cc Prince.

holes.jpgWell the frame is now painted and going back together.

The engine is completely stripped and I am now welding and machining two holes in the main case where somebody tried to remove the flywheel with a pair of tyre levers - there are some bodgers about.
