Nice job, are you going to upgrade the front brakes?

No break upgrade, but deciding how to fix the 'glas tank that has started to leak...

James

Apart from the actual 'pretend' mufflers the bike is stock standard ~ Would have to confirm with the muffler/s actually they may be the stock as well as it was not intended as a road bike ~

Tje original 1967/ 1968 HORNET/ A65FS ( Firebird Scramblers) were very special item even down to the crankshafts being nitrated etc After all they were a competiton machine ~

I never liked the single lever brakes exexially compares to the later (superb appearance) Tri-BSA TLS of 1968 onward!
