Projects are like busses......Enfields

Post by Diesel Dave » Thu Jun 21, 2018 8:52 pm

So after acquiring a second Modenas Kriss that definitely a ‘work in progress’, suddenly another Enfield gets offered with V5 for less than a ton, and it has the complete early disk brake front end that retained the metal fork shrouds.

Waaaay too many projects now, I may have to shed a few so the CT200 may have to go as may the CG125.

So it’s missing the primary drive and case along with the clutch and gearbox contents but I already have those, all I need is to locate a nice little diesel motor from one of those Axiam microcars and I’ll be in business.

Makes you wonder how you ever found the time to go to work doesn't it?

I've just finished painting my house so found myself at a loose end today. Decided to try the Harpic trick on a very scruffy SV exhaust to good effect (thanks Knapdog). On the basis of that result I have more to do.

Riding through Rochford a couple of days ago I saw a rather smart looking Enfield coming the other way, it sounded like a Diesel but I could be wrong. I have a history of being wrong. Apparently. :lol:

I think there's a glitch with imgur, your photo host, Dave.

Oh look, a proper rear seat! That'll earn you some Brownie points with SWIMBO. :D

Saw it again today and I was indeed wrong. It was a Bullet with a very small diameter fake fishtail on it. :lol:
