The frame now powder coated

The frame has now been stripped and any part that can be blasted and powder coated has been. The frame was in a reasonable shape and no repairs were necessary. Quite a lot of studs were damaged and/or seized in the fram and a few snapped off by the rear wheel mount. I’ll post up some detailed shots in due course as we start the build up. The first stage will be to clean up all thread holes and source the front forks etc – these were not with the bike. You will notice from the picture that there is 'gaffer' tape on the frame to stop it getting chipped!

Photos of what I have to start with....

As you can see the bike is not very complete BUT it does have an original Buff Log Book (albeit Irish) and shows that the frame and engine numbers are correct and do match. I shall attempt to do some research on the bike!

The parts are going to take some finding but it is going to be a challenge! The first stage is a strip down to see exactly what I have.
