Hmm .. if the filter bolt isn't screwed in,  I doubt if the engine rebuild will be anywhere near your standards Graham! Also has small ends done ..how do you do that on a 550???

I see it has the extra overdrive gearbox fitted and fully adjustable headlight and pillion mounts. Nice looking final pipe though, I'd have that!

Never even started - so it’s a non runner?

Still mere details such as the aircraft dazzling light don’t matter as its a collections bike that he’s selling  relunctenly. If it makes as much as he thinks they’re worth in show condition he’ll push it round to your house.

No wonder he’s fitted the headlight upside down, looking at the alternator cover, the bike’s spent most of its life that way.  CG 500 is a rare bike though.  Restored to show condition too - is the Blind Institute still on Beverley road Ash?

No I am afraid not. I can only assume he is very busy, because surely he wouldn't ignore any enquiry.  ;)
