Yes should of expanded....
The engine was given to my mate mark to sort crank bearings, rods , pistons ect .one thing lead to another and decided to go the whole hog full nuts and bolt.
I'm sure you will agree he's done a exemplary job.

Lovely bike, I had a white & red W reg ex-proddy racer 400 back in the 80's. Really wish I'd kept it over everything else I've owned :(

Fantastic Bikes and still look modern even 40+ years after the event .....

Teal green was the best colour though. :roll:
