Looking good Goff, not too bad a price for the carbs either.



Thanks Neil , Its giving me some heartache this body shell , Today taken the rear subframe off and re-drilled the mounting points as one wheel was sticking out around 12mm further than the other one Grrrrrrrr  and bloody cold working outside , Carbs good buy i have been watching ebay for about 4 months , Prices can vary considerable ,These were pretty local also and not worn on the spindles is a bonus.
Neil are you coming over to Blyton this year ?????

I won't make Blyton, the dates don't suit this year, I'm heading to Portugal for the IMM in May, can't afford to do both events unfortunately
