Hi from Darren in Burnley
« on: January 10, 2019, 08:11:16 PM »
Hello all I'm Darren, I've been reading great posts on the forum for a while and thought it was about time i took the plunge!  I'm early into a 400F project, my first motorcycle restoration of any kind.  The bike is a '77 (R) which if i manage to attach a photo you'll see needs a lot of tlc, though it was a runner when I bought it.  Currently stripped, frame powder coated, just about to send hubs for vapour blasting, then likely a large bill from David Silver to get back to rolling chassis.

I'm in Burnley so would be great to hear from local owners, if only to remind me where all the bits go!

Looking fwd to learning and hopefully contributing.

Welcome to the 400four forum.  It'll be good to compare the before and after pictures.  Hope everything goes to plan.
