Hi,
I've just acquired this bike, with a Devimead 750 engine conversion in a variety of boxes and crates and would be interested to speak with any members in England (particularly the South East and East) who have current or recent experience of a similar restoration. I will be particularly grateful for recommendations of good mechanics and suppliers.
All the best,
Dave

Im in Suffolk, and you may have already found out about SRM in Aberystwyth have I spelt that right? They supply the best stuff, but at an honest price, in other words, not tat.
If your looking for someone local, I can recommend Washbrook Service Station on the Old A12, south of Ipswich. They have a website!
