It Started!

Recommended Posts

The M27 started second kick after 38 years dormant.  Rex Caunt Racing ignition highly recommended. Helpful guy.

Bit of fettling to do yet but finally getting somewhere!

Cheers

Good to see it going. Very cool-looking header pipe. Did you make it? Also where is the beautiful fuel tank from?

Hi, Did I reply? Sorry feetupfun. if I'm repeating myself. The header pipe is a heavily modded later downward pipe with the original flange cut off and a new one hammered out by hand (a trick learnt from an old hand at vintage restorations, connected to the original silencer via a custom length of flexible pipe. 

The tank is hand made by a guy called Terry Weedy in Portsmouth. Its really for a Pursang but is close enough to the sherpa not to worry me and at £280 actually cheaper than refurbing the original. Only problem is no balance pipe, but laying the bike on its side fixes this.

 

Best
