What are the numbers on the frame and engine (at least the first few to confirm the model year) ? The Bacon buyers guide lists black with tank chrome and red for the B33 in 48-51. For later models he has maroon.

J: thanks for the info. The paint scheme on the tank is unusual for sure. It looks like you have a lot of work ahead of you but most of the bits are there.

There is a lot of knowledge on this Forum so keep us informed of your progress.
