There’s a little more work to do: a stripped thread needs repairing, some adjustments have to be made and pipes re-routed. But for all intents and purposes the restoration of Grey Flash 2751 is at an end, some 14 years after originally acquired. It’s been a long journey that’s required much focus in order to get the detail right. Much more of the bike was more original than initially thought which was a very pleasant surprise. Sourcing the original fuel tank and the incredibly rare Lucas K1FTT racing magneto was incredibly serendipitous. From now work will focus on starting and running 2751 and the necessary shaking down process.
I think the photos speak for themselves. Without Bert’s expertise and experience this restoration would not have been completed so expediently. 🙏🏻
