When I am not mending Royal Enfields ...
« on: November 15, 2013, 04:28:04 AM »
I mend things like this - it started out as a burnt out wreck [it had actually been almost destroyed in a fire] I am very pleased with it and thankfully, so is the owner. First two pics give an idea of what it was like on arrival. Note to self - remove any rags and wooly hats, etc from pockets to avoid looking a strange shape in pictures  :o
 [click on link below pics for better sizing, otherwise they will be enormous]

+1... Top notch work.

What a beautiful machine.  Looks like it just rolled out of the factory.

Cool looking bike, and nice job!

That brings back memories for me. I had some friends in the 1970s who had Rocket Three bikes.

Beautiful bike and a great job of restoring it.
You can be proud of that. :)

Don't worry about the lumpy pockets.
Worrying about things like that can lead one to drink too many beers which will only add to the lumps.  ;D  ;)
