bigger to alleviate the historic problem of the back cylinders “tightening up” ( work carried out by David Jones ). New pistons fitted. The gearbox was also overhauled with many new parts.

The bike has been off the road and sorned since 2008 with the fuel and oil tanks drained. The engine kicks over with good compression.
