Picked up this bike in England. She was an ok runner but after some fiddling she drove perfectly. Only the looks were’nt there yet. Rechromed the tank and repainted all parts. New Lucas headlight Replaced some parts to make it more period correct…Lucas Altette horn instead of a cheap spin-off for example 5 years later…
