1979 SSD

Post by Donald » Tue Jan 07, 2014 1:35 am

New to this fine place and wanted to put a pic of my project, this forum has already helped me lots.

Since this picture, the engine is currently about 90% restored and wont be long before I have the tin work painted back to light blue.
Still a long way to go but loving the experience & looking forward to the day I fire her up for a ride.

they all deserve to be back on the road
regards
Don

Nice one, Don.

(As you say: just get rid of that dreadful red and you'll be there ... :-D )

Ciao

craig, I have done some searching but struggling to find the accessory pictured between the two bikes, probably is ok as might be too expensive anyway.

Making some progress but still a long way to go, however think I am getting the colour issue sorted out.

regards to all
Don

all

Some more progress has been made, and now I think I can very much see light at the end of the tunnel.

I am starting to get excited about when I fire her up, appologies for my photo work as I know I'm not very good

regards
Don

All

time for another progress report - picture attached.

I have been for my first shake down ride, and apart from a few small adjustments required it all seems good.
Runs very nice, sounds great and even the first short ride felt better than I thought it would with such an agressive perch.

I feel very happy with my progress so far, and has been a very interesting project

best regards
Don

Nice one, Don, especially when I compare it to what it used to look like!

Congrats! Hope you enjoy it - they're really nice bikes to ride.
