Nobody thinks twice about custom builders taking angle grinders to ageing Japanese Motorcycles, but when sparks fly from rare pieces of classic Brit machinery, the occasionally uneasy relationship between classic purists and custom aficionados can become stretched. But when a bike has been crafted with the care and respect that is put into this build you simply end up with a bike that satisfies every niche of biking admiration.
The process was extensive, all parts were disassembled, the engine was completely stripped down, rebored and fitted with new bearings, pistons, rods, seals, valves, guides and any other bits it craved. Whilst its inners lay in pieces the cases were vapour blasted and given a coat of flat black powder coat along with the frame. Once the motor was completed, it went back in the frame with electronic ignition and a 12 volt conversion. The colour matched engine cases and tank (complete with rack and grippy knee pads) supply the bike with great visual balance, sandwiching the bright clean engine and pipes in deep black.
