Why is the listing from the guy  Classic bike guy in Cheshire but the video at Frank's?

This was the Dunstall Frank had for sale in his shop when he bought my 400/4 last autumn.
I remember looking at the headlight set up, that will make night riding interesting!
Maybe it was slow moving stock and Frank has passed it on?

Interesting is one word, why is another. What a lash up!
One day I'll have the time to restore it, not just talk and dream....

The whole thing is a lash up - look at those rearsets! Always thought Dunstall stuff was amateur-ish in the 70's.

Thats an early kit with glass tank, later kits had a tank cover in glass and the headlamp moved to front of fairing.
Dont see anything wrong with rearsets, you have to have a seperate mounting plate and if you cut it full of holes it breaks

Love those Dunstall exhausts on that bike, used to have the  same set on my Honda years ago, the mufflers were shorter tho with dunstall badges  gave them away.. distinctive bark to the exhaust note. I keep looking for a set.

Replaced my standard 500k1 exhausts with Dunstall's (when the standard rotted after 12 months) - loved the sound at first (novelty of being young boy racer) but after another 2 years/30,000 miles of long distance commuting, I couldn't wait to swap the bike due to my ears ringing after each ride.

Nice bike with some historical interest, but not at that price. I mean that headlight, plus jubilee clips holding the front mudguard on. Yuk.
