A little update of sorts...

Just a quick update to show you I am still fettling the old girl...

I have just managed to get a nice late model, 350cc alloy head, this will be opened up for use on the 500, with new valves etc. this will be used in combination with a BSA B50 high comp piston, and a set of custom profiled high lift valves, to give it all a little omph!

My rear wheel has been built around a 19" flanged alloy rim, with stainless spokes, and will wear a 4-00 x 19 tyre. And today I picked up a 21" front wheel with twin leading brake, just to get me moving while I look to find a conical front hub.

My frame is about to go into the shop to have some brackets welded on, so that I can move the brake pedal and foot rests back a piece, and fit some rear sets on the gear change side.
