This matching numbers Speed Twin would originally have bee a "bathtub" model but the rear bodywork has been removed as was so often the case. Currently built into a cafe racer style with clip-ons, rear-sets, sports seat, swept-back upswept reverse-cone exhausts and forks with exposed springs, it does have a certain look. It's actually not very safe as it is though, due to ill-fitting front forks and generally poor fit of some of the "extras". The extas have a value of course, and the pile of more standard parts with it suggest this bike was restored to a high quality in it's relatively recent past. It could be put back that way or with a little more attention the cafe racer look could be made to work. We can easily have the engine running but it's being sold as a project. Project hunters please apply. V5C present and correct.
