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!
it wasnt so much the bike it was the class of the racing,its very competitive,some triples were making 100+ horse power and man could they ride! i realised if i tried to keep up the end result would be an even shorter rocket 3

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.

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.
