Nice. Looks pretty similar to mine in terms of condition. Good to see you have the airbox. But sadly, like me also, no original seat.
What's your plans?

Hi,
It will get a full strip when it gets to me.So,i guess i'll start with the frame up. Depending on what I find along the way will dictate the speed of progress. I can see a few non original bits and this is not a great problem to me as I will be building it to a fairly original theme as opposed to bone stock. I don't mind period accessories so it will look slightly modified. I have a good description of the bike from the vendor so i'll see if I can work out how to post it.

That exhaust is indeed foul....I can't see one redeeming feature about it....I'll likely be going for a V+H :D :D :D :D

Hi Simonic

welcome to the ST owners club !!!! A great bike! You'll love it! It seems to be in running condition. If you want to restore it to original specs you can allways ask advice, don't be shy!
The most difficult part is the original exhaust but you'll put a V&H on it, OK for me.
Get a new handle bar, find a rubber bunge to put over the kickstart shaft, find a rear mudguard and go!
Let the good times roll !!!

Hi Steve.
Thank you for getting in touch. It's most interesting that you are running the Delkevic as this is one of the exhaust options i'm considering.
Which end pipe did you go for ?
What is your opinion on the system as a whole please?
Cheers
Simon

Hi Simon.
Just using the pipe that came with the exhaust,it was easly to fit,the finsh is good and you can change the oil and fitter with it fitted, and i think it sounds ok,and the price is ok.
Steve.
