Another old classic ripe for restoration :doh:

Again this a very early example, maybe first week of production?...#164 off the line, with matching engine.

This bike also has the super rare lightweight racing brake pedal :eyebrows:

Rolling frame is actually in pretty good nick.
Fork chrome is beautiful as are rims. Has a set of Hagon shocks.
Main issue is someone has cut off the seat latch plate from the frame :hmmm: Not sure why this would be, but easy fix I guess.

Engine was just cobbled together...the whole top end is just on there for show, all the innards are in a box. :roll:
So I've found a guy that has 2 or 3 400's that is interested in rebuilding (or re-assembling really) the engine.
So I packed it in the van last weekend and delivered it.
With luck I'll get back an engine ready to go again.

Engine basically back in one piece and ready for pick up. :dance:
No flashy vapour blasting on this one, plan to just get her back together and running, I can always fully restore later methinks.
