I said to the big guy about to get on his "Kettle", you don't go far on that seat. His reply- Plenty of padding on me arse ::) ::) ::)



A lot cooler with a big dark cloud overhead at the Ponderosa. Look like it had rained a bit earlier but We got away with it, Thank God :: :P :P

Thanks for posting. The 400 looks great and thats one of the best looking Sheene rep Kettles I have seen.

Great pics!  The Kettle looks good. Guess he has the electric start with a battery in there somewhere?

My thoughts exactly, no kickstart, however I know its smaller but my KH triple fires up by hand on the kickstart, so a quick bump might? Start up that replica.

Rocket, not planning going this weekend anyway. Too much prep to do to get started on 400C, I hope ;D ;D ;D

400 looking great Paul, and that kettle is lovely. I’ve always liked Dunstall’s but that puts them in the shade.

Thanks Gary. There's a couple of guys round here whose Dunstalls knock that 1 for 6. I'll try and get pictures of them for you :) :) :)

I think the Kettle is a wee bit more than a Dunstall. Think it is a road conversion or a replica of a TR750 race bike. Should be quite a serious bit of kit.  :)
