    Special thanks go to Richard66 who did all the paint for me in record time, and to HillBilliez refurbishers for doing all the shot blasting of the frame and stuff !

    Nice one. Is it for sale? How much?

    No Pete, sorry mate def not for sale !
    Within an hour of it being finished I was offered 700 quid for it, then this afternoon the same guy came back waving 850 under my nose and I still turned it down !
    They are just SO hard to find nowadays ( esp. ones in reasonable nick ) that once people get hold of one they tend to keep it.
    Mind you, if any more come up I will be sure to let folk know...Even a rough one is worth buying as they are really easy rebuild to do.
    BUT ! Like I said elsewhere, I bought this one as a total basket case and it still cost me 245 quid plus a 230(ish) mile round trip to get it, so be prepaired to spend a little mate ...

    Funny you should say that Minkey ! The colour is actually Blackbird candy Glory Red !! ( Well it was supposed to be, but it was not quite right, thats why it ended up on the dirt bike and not on someones panels!
