Frame number: A50B5421
Engine Number: A65D2964

This example has been partially restored to a general a65 spec rather than full A65L spec (it does not have lightning rocket carbs or tank for instance(, but the work so far as been completed to a decent standard, which includes:

Freshly powder coasted frame
Fresh paint.
Restored clocks
Carbs rebuilt
Fresh Chrome
Stainless Rims
Stailess Spokes
Boyer Brandon Electronic Ignition

It needs finishing off with the wiring loom connecting, fuel system plumbing a very other jobs here and there. A cracking project for an enthusiast.
