Only the engine, wiring, throttle bodies and swing arm are Japanese,
the rest may fail though.

Dave.
Just thinking about Lardmarc's MT - frame original SWM design so Italian modified by British then Americans
- engine Austrian - brake calipers, wiring connectors, switchgear Italian - headlamp surround, sidepanels American, - front shocks, rear shocks, CDI, tyres, bearings ???

You both have a point. Maybe it's time to bin the Armstrongs and concentrate on something British. I ain't owned a Bonnie since the early 80's, I loved it apart from how unreliable it was. After a few years of MT ownership I think I've calmed down enough to go back to them.

That’s really impressive work carried out there
Looks fantastic
All I can manage with my MT is a quick wipe down with an oily rag :shock:

He'd probably get a smack in the chops if he tried that with his 'oily rag'. ;)

anyhow,
bit more done,
propper rebuild now, wheels and tyres sorted,fuel & air delivery first attempt decided on,clocks fitted.

still fighting with the wiring,battery etc,luckily i have my contemplation chair,

i think the 150 section rear tyre might be a tad overkill for the pathetic 321cc ;)

still, the sun shines on the righteous,
