Sorry but its not my bike, it belongs to a friend of mine, Wee Davy. Hes had it a good few years now and it does get used, but mainly during the summer. Hes done a good job of sorting it out to the way he wants, he calls it hi Baby Bonnie.

GNC, just had a look at another pic and hes got a Metzeler on the front

I'm surmising the tank is nose-high because it's a later three-bolt fixing tank on a 1966 ish four bolt front frame, and the tunnel's shallower?
Looks like a long-term ownership project, but he likes his Red Hermatite, doesn't he? :6

Clever art-work.

Many thanks kawa for posting these pics. The owner has clearly put in a lot of thought and effort

What I've spotted so far

Late type r0ckerboxes with side inspection plugs
Wacky extended length r0ckerbox caps
Spare clutch cable taped to the one in use
Additional grease nipples for the swingarm pivot
Side reflector strips
Alloy rims
626 carb (has he tried a 624?)

Looks like a bike you could ride anywhere, year round. Good stuff!

Obviously not a motorcyclist then, bike is spelled motorcycle, and you ride them not drive them. Anything you have to contribute regarding classic motorcylces other than dreaming,is most welcome. :220
