Man-O-Man,
Do I like the looks of those types of frames! They look short-coupled? Anyways, shorter in length than a standard frame, lighter also!
Almost looks like you'll never remove the engine again!

Yeah, they use both terms over here...

What 'scared' you about the first one?

Nothing really to speak of other than it's pretty non-original and that's a zundapp rear fender on it. She's a hell of a starter being my first kick start (as well as my first bike overall!) without the compression release working and a half dead battery. It has a new AMAL on it and it's 12v, no idea if that's factory or it received an upgrade over the past 40 years. She's getting a cleanup and I'll be repainting some of the brackets/etc over the summer while riding it.

No idea what is what on it to be honest, other than the zundapp rear fender. An identification of parts is more than welcome!

You must be trying to "get our goat" by posting images of a Honda on a BSA picture thread. It worked.

Hello Allan: I went back about 15 pages, all I see is the Kawasaki A10 clone. It might have some relevance to this thread.

I had one of those 400Fs myself, just a couple years ago. An interesting little bike, and I took a few pics of it. Never occurred to me to post one here.

I read and enjoy all your posts, but I hope we can get these pics deleted.

For the gold? nothing. All it takes is a dremel cloth polishing wheel and metal polish and polish off the lacquer coating that is on them from factory. With that removed - the gold, (brass) polishes up like new. Took about 3 hours to do them both. Masking was not the most fun - then sprayed the with tank color and clearcoat. No need to clearcoat the brass star like the factory tried.

Having had a lot of help from people on this site, I thought that I would post some pictures of the finished item. It is now taxed and MOT'd and runnning.
