I have decided that the bike is now ready as it ever will be for sale. The Lola Porsche is waiting for a cosmetic re-build, and the first race is only 4 months away, so I need to get going.

The parts for the carb have been fettled and painted and an air filter from a Royal Enfield has been adapted to the new Chinese carb to try to get a bit of an authentic look back.
It was time to get the bike off the stand for the first time since 10 months ago which allowed the final parts to go on, the chain guard and the foot pegs.

Out with the engine hoist and a gentle lift off the stand and onto the floor using the bike's own stand and time for a few pictures.
When the sun shines a bit I'll take some good pics and get the bike advertised.
Phew!

Quite a trip this one, surprisingly tricky which is what I wanted as the previous two were too easy/expensive.
The whole bike as you see it has cost about 2400 inc the initial cost and the registration. The number of hours? goodness knows, but a LOT.

I think there are 3 in the country, I wonder if DVLA would tell me?
Anyway, thank you to everyone who has chipped in, helped and encouraged me with this French Fancy.  :)












And as a reminder!

Lovely job! Now time to smoke out the neighborhood before you sell it?

Ha! Been doing that for weeks....
Bloody 2 strokes, simple but so hard to get them right.

Up for sale now it is done, 2400 if anyone might see this.
This is the cost of the bike, the parts and the registration, but none of the 1,000,000 hours over the last 10 months!

Nice job. The carb doesn't look too out of place either.

Thanks, it was a shame not to get the original working, but I don't know why it would not; that will always be a mystery!
Maybe the next owner will crack it?
The carb is in the little tool box all wrapped up.

Saw a Bantam with a similar carb on it the other Sunday at a small vintage bike meet.
