This started many years ago as a 'Sport' bought from NLM, after several years I dveloped back problems and in a brainstorm decided to return it to the original Strada spec (big mistake!) 8 years later I've finally got her running again (no big deal, she was in big bits all that time, but I'd not been well - no really). Still have the electrics to redo, instruments to mount, but with a few minor tweaks she's starting easily and ticking over steadily.
Before and after photos (the airbox is now fitted, tank and headlight were put on for the pic)

It's looking good and the Strada spec might be more practical.

Well, here she is after about 10 years of neglect and apathy (caused by a chronic illness - now in remission).
I finished the rewire and reassembly of various parts, re-registered, then insured this week followed by a test ride this morning, from which I returned with a big grin and the desire for longer trips.

Thanks - well perfect would be electric start and left hand gearchange, but at the moment I seem to have the carbs somewhere near right and she only takes a couple of kicks, so should be OK for the near future, anyway.
Next on the blocks is a BSA Bantam, then on to the 250C2 - I'll send you my UK address for the spacer (and maybe the stand), but no rush.
