a4 resto nearly done

#1 PostAuthor: relisysxx » Sun Apr 01, 2018 9:30 pm

Just about finished my a4, tried to use as much of the original bike as possible so have renovated rather than replace where possible.
Turned out alright I reckon.

The Z1 was restored from the bike below, which is why I had to use a lot of repro parts.
I tried to keep as much of the original a4 as possible but the downside was it ended up costing 3 grand more the the z1 to restore partly due to having no airbox (total cost £650) and putting a twin disc conversion on it (also £650)
