Hi, The bike was imported from california as to get a rust free frame, its a 1978 and registered in the UK as a historic vehicle, the frame was shortened at the rear hoop, all unnecessary part removed for a clean look, it was then media blasted ,hot zinc primed and powder coated.

Starting from the front it has a rare  sr500 front drum imported from omega racer in Thailand, laced to a 21inch Italian borland rim with stainless spokes and Avon speed master tyre

Front forks polished, shaved, new seals fitted with like new fork tubes

New taper head bearings,

8inch rise Buckhorn with classic levers white grips and white custom throttle cable

Electrolite polished headlamp converted to led, discreet front indicators

Cole Foster tank, with sight gauge and flush cap , Harvey chrome tap with reserve,painted in large flake and candy paint, the photos don’t do it justice,it is dazzling

The engine has been professionally built with the upgraded oil filters,new clutch and all seals and gaskets replaced, carburettors fully overhauled with new diaphragms and rubber inlet manifolds, engine casings are highly polished, runs like a dream

Electrics contained under the seat in an ornate brass box with matching alternator cover

Phosphor bronze swing arm bushes and new spindle

The exhaust is custom made out of oversized stainless with removable baffles, due to the oversize bore the bike sounds very deep

Custom seat made from ivory Real leather

New chain sprockets,wheelbearings,shoes,stainless brake rod, new 18 inch borrani rim laced to original polished hub with stainless spokes and new period tyre

Custom made kicked up rear mudguard in large flake and candy,

70s jetport indicators all led, custom polished stop and tail lamp

Every nit and bolt has been replaced with stainless,

I could go on, didn’t build to sell, but circumstances have forced this, beautifully bike that doesn’t compromise performance or rideability,

Won’t let me add the main pictures I wanted to as it says files too big

Any questions or offers,just get in touch and I can email photos
