I am a new member to the site. I owned a Shooting Star in late 1960's which my girlfriend (wife) travelled many miles it was a great bike. A couple of years back i had the chance to by an A10 frame and decided to build an A 10 from scratch. Two years later I am still at it. It,s very interesting, I have done restorations before, but always from a complete or almost complete bike. Its also very frutrating at times because the books all say the the model hardly chaned fo 20 years but there are lots of little diffeerences. Any way must go gota rocker box to aassemble

Sorry about the spelling I could not find the modify button. You would not think that I was English.
