Current collection!
« on: November 06, 2018, 11:42:30 PM »
Hi All,

I bought a US 350B earlier this year - this was it before I started stripping it:



Its now almost down to the frame ready for powder coating.

This is the everyday bike - not so much in this weather though:



Hope the image posting works this time I couldn't get images from my google drive to work

I'll post some of my past bikes if it does

Cheers Bruce

Good luck with the rebuild of your 350b. It would be great to see updates in the "Restoration" section

looks like a good bike to start with ;D,  the pipes look a bit odd to me.

Well spotted! I think they are R5 pipes as they are one piece rather than detachable headers like RDs

Would this be a problem? They are in excellent condition so I hope not.

They may fracture, I think the later ones had the joint to stop this happening.

Thanks for the heads up Doug. Maybe I should consider selling/swapping for an RD set - It'll be a while before I need them so not urgent yet.
