The bike has 16,000 miles on it, by the looks of it, and going by its MOT history, has had a very easy life. I'm still trying to work out why it seized. Oil pump and passages are good.

Going to strip the frame and enamel it. Got a bit of a budget going on now the crank has to be reground. I was hoping it was going to be a dropped valve or other top end failure, cheaper to fix. Should be a nice bike when finished (fingers crossed). I'm going to leave the passenger seat off. Missus will probably sulk, but I like the look. ilis

Hope its not as bad as mine. I've sent my crank and rods to S.E.P in Kegworth because it was too scored to get away with just changing the shells. They quoted £180, which isn't too bad considering they are as rare as chickens teeth or £1275 for a new one. 
Don't forget to take pics of your progress and what you find.
