It's an early '70's Bonnie Oil in Frame with a '68 TR6R 650 motor. The tank & seat unit is from http://www.thetankshop.com/
The front end is off a Yam TDR250 - and the rear from a Suzook DR650. Amal 930 carb - 200 main jet.
Wired it meself using Boyer Brandsden ignition & a Boyer PowerBox - so don't need a battery.......
Michelin Serac tyres & h/duty tubes.
Got it as a part assembled project with no electrics or oil pipes - forks/swingarm not fitted properly... this is when I got it home & roughly assembled it:
Sorted s/arm & got frame acid dipped & powder coated....
...few weeks of hard graft, cleaning, polishing, sorting front end, forks with new bushes & seal, etc.... 95% done
.... couple more weekends fine tuning....
