1953 A7 Star Twin

Hope you like the Star Twin. Restoration took me an age and it was not without its problems (are they ever?). Nevertheless I am really please with the outcome and if there was ever such a thing as a 'pretty bike' then for me at least, this is it.

Beautiful! To my eyes the colour scheme gives the bike the look of an early Triumph, (oh dear, I'm not going to heaven now!)  *conf*

All these gorgeous bikes showing up. Getting me motivated. Painted my frame last week, so that's a start at least. Now I just need to build the engine, transmission, forks..........
