lovely jubbly - interesting indicator point. My K0 500 came from US and already had the smaller ones

They started fitting those hideous large ones around 1974ish, the U.K bikes didn't get them until the 550K3 and 750F2

Very nice indeed, looks like you painted the engine if so what paint was it?

Looks very nice. Take a long look at it as it will never look as good again if you use it.  ;)

Engine was very clean to start with with just a few bits of missing paint around the fins so has been painted with Simonez VHT
