Finished - Before and After
« on: April 02, 2021, 05:32:11 PM »
All done, just waiting for registration and  forks to sort as they are a bit 'clunky' for some reason. Having a rest from resto's for a while - they are wearing me out (and my bank account!)

 Very nice work and what a transformation.

Those original colours too, many have been changed over the years but yet to see one that could even get close to that.

Well done. So many think and dream of doing that... but few can and do. Stunning.
One day I'll have the time to restore it, not just talk and dream....

Great job and the best paint work colour too. I prefer the Big 750 clocks on the K2
to the small 350 type clocks on the K0/K1

Does the side stand hit No1 exhaust Phil, my BIL is complaining his does now since he rebuilt it. Yours certainly looks close. I suspect wear in the frame pivot or the side stand itself.

Bike looks nice, paint looks more Candy Gold Custom now for some reason.
Don't play stupid with me, I'm better at it
