1955 18CS. Finally Finished (More or Less..)

Postby Halfwhelk » Sun Nov 03, 2019 2:03 pm

Still some jobs to do; Gearbox, Forks, But the bike is finally in a ride-able condition.
I'm very pleased with it, I thought you'd like to see a picture.
Thanks for your help and advice over the last year or so.

Great looking machine! Is it just an illusion from the photo that the pipe looks like it's wedged right up against the jampot? :geek:
Fix it until it's broken!

Otherwise how will
anything get done?

No its just the photo. There's about 1 centimeter clearance.
