Runs as you would expect (well, like a 45 year old bike of course !!!)
Running in for 250 miles will be required.
(will need an oil/filter change at that point. Uses a mineral 10/40w oil)
Will come with a workshop manual, new oil filter and 4 spare NGK spark plugs.
It could be changed back into the USA spec if need be for no extra charge.
Over £9000 of new parts used, £3500 spent on specialist restoration work, £4000 for the donor bike, so £18,000 is not unreasonable once you include any of our labour charges.
