I finally located a source for the original green oil!! This is the best oil available for your classic motorbike!! And if I don’t have the viscosity you need, I can quickly order more!!
This bike has been through quite an incredible journey the last couple of decades, from H. Isabel in 2003 flooding it above the wheels to some questionable work done with the best of intentions that made for a beautiful bike that couldn’t be ridden. We’re slowly fixing and fettling it bit by bit and hope to have it complete before the summer rush begins. It could happen…
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But the constructor of this beautiful ride lacked the mechanical skill to make it run and ride like it should. We fixed some oil leaks, tuned the engine correctly and repaired a myriad of electrical issues to make this steed a joy to behold and operate!! It garnished a lot of attention whilst in the shop, it’s simple, clean lines, paint and parts that hearken to even earlier Trumpets made for many pleasant conversations!! And isn’t that what riding motorcycles of all vintages is all about?? The joyous wonder of the ride and the camaraderie amongst fellow enthusiasts?
Mr. Unsworth (is that not a proper British biker name?!?!) was thrilled with the finished product and gave us a glowing report on Twitter here! Here’s to many miles and smiles for him and his motorbike!!
