Lawson Jigsaw Project

#1 PostAuthor: z1000puddin » Sat Jul 08, 2017 6:14 pm

Well then.
So, I proceeded to empty all the boxes & try to get some sort of order, to see just exactly what I have here...
The plan is to dry build it, then strip & send the various parts to paint , powder & polish.
I got to this stage today ....
What I do need to start with is...
* Clock assembly with a key
*Nose fairing & screen
* Starter motor
* a side stand bracket
I'm slowly getting through all the boxes & should have all emptied & on the shelf by tomorrow.
There seems to be lots of GPZ parts.
Also multiple brake discs, mostly all very good.
Multiple Clutches, Dyna S ignition plates, a scruffy kerker
A scruffy Harris, A pretty good V&H.

Some members have asked about parts, I will get back you guys via PM

All the boxes, but there seems to be a lot of GPZ & J parts

looks like you've got quite an inventory of parts there.

There is a complete bottom end unitrack, but no ignition housing, sorry

I got my casing off eBay for £15, you can still buy them new for about 10 times what I paid.

Doing a bit more today.
Checked out the ignition, I have not seen one like this
Can anyone enlighten me?

IMG_6099.JPG
What type of ignition is this . ??


Also removed the race alternator cover.
So I will need a starter gear assy & a rotor.
Are the rotors all the same on these ??

Anyone have one they want to part with?

Looks like GPZ1100 Unitrak to me if it's connected to the Igniter it is probably in a plastic case

Looks like a unitrac output shaft so may be a whole unitrac motor See what the engine number is.

Z1100R has a Unitrak engine, that ignition pickup is standard Unitrak, if you want to fit a Dyna ignition you'll need a J engine casing
