New pic w/ disc brake moved to right side....
Limey tax disc........
Are there any in between pics or a build thread I missed?
This is fantastic!
Very few build pics.
Will look for them.
Out of curiosity, why did the brake caliper migrate from one side to the other?.
Just noticed that...........must be a senior moment during reassembly....
Is it a true JPN or a replica?
Yeah, you're gonna want to fix that.
The wheel is now rotating in a direction that can cause the threaded bearing retainer to unscrew.
Otherwise, nice bike!
BTW, got the original JPN tank under the cover?
Ist time I saw one at a swapmeet, it took me a while to figure out what i was looking at.
Yes , it is an authentic JPN
VIN # plate:
That is an astute question
I've been researching what makes for a genuine JPN recently.
I only recently learned about the Vin plate location.
My wife's boss is looking for one, I've been helping him in his search.
Probably the search is going to be called off, he just bought a Laverda
Those are the two authenticating items I know of.
The stretched tank and VIN plate location.
I got lucky and am the second owner. Bought it from the widow of original owner. When finished (swap brake and hook up lites) it too will go up on the block.
That bikes and the quality of the rebuilds a real credit to you.
The National motorcycle museum had the originals on display at the Norton day two years ago.
Check out the engine on the later machine.
I'm about to date myself but I just can't resist.
I remember when one of those sat in the window at Munroe motors in San Francisco forever. They damn near gave it away.
pic w/ brake on right side
looks great!i'm glad things are better.
I was always a fan of that model and even had most of the bodywork to create a replica at one time.
I still have a couple of stickers from the "Challenge" motor campaign when you could buy into a "raffle" for a £ a ticket. If your name was drawn, you got a weekend at the races with JPN... didn't run for long
Yes everything's coming up roses !
Thanks again for the loan of a bike for the Lone Star Rally.
Now have a 2001 HD FXDXT.
Will drink one for you down at Woody's.
