Matching numbers UK machine that has been used relatively recently but stood for at least a year before we acquired it. This is a largely unrestored bike with ownership history and original handbook. Frame number and engine number provided on request, it checks out with the production records in the authoritative books we all read and it appears to have remained in standard specification throughout (although the mirrors are missing) with a refreshing lack of replica parts. As you can hear the engine is mechanically quiet and clean-running, idling really smoothly. A little attention to the accelerator pumps on those huge carbs would improve pickup and there will be a few jobs like this to do, broadly falling into the category of recommissioning rather than restoration, although it will be a prime resto candidate in years to come. As it is it’s clearly a good example in good original condition to ride or restore.
