I had a 68 but sold it a few years ago and kept the blue one.

Haven't started on mine yet. Wish it was a hard tail model, but I got it for free, so I shouldn't complain.

Well done! I did a resto on this later one about 10 years ago or so. Got some pretty good money when she sold :)

Thanks for posting your bikes, they are a inspiration!

pretty soon I will get some parts in and then more pictures. I have the engine torn down right now and it turns out the low compression is caused by leaking valves. the piston and rings look fine but I did not take off the rings and check the gaps, I also got the 4 speed transmission installed.
