This is my very first attempt at a restoration. I found my old Wild One in the loft looking very sorry for itself. It had been sitting in an old Beatties bag for what must have been around 20+ years! Before it had been thrown in the loft it had been run in on holiday in Padstow for a couple of weeks around the harbour and on the beach so the salt had really done some damage. To cut a long story short, after many hours of searching ebay and cleaning/repairing etc, its looking proud again. Ive carefully run it twice now but it mostly sits on the shelf looking cool :o)

Very nice and clean work. Good combination with FAV side bars and FAV driver head. Would like to see the face of the driver. Can you add an additionsl picture? Regard Stefano
