Right,no pictures of the S1 when i got it first (believe me,it wasnt a pretty sight),but it was dressed up as a series 2.
It was bought from Weston super mare in 1996 by a mate who was after a series 2 but didnt realise it was a series 1 framebreather till he got it home.
It had been fitted with a series 2 horncasting and headset,so it looked the part.
I swapped it for a 'proper' series 2 as i had the correct headset and horncasting knocking around,so happy days all round.
It spent the next 9 years under a plastic cover outside in my mothers back garden,until i had the time to make a start on it.
I had it blasted and sprayed white,decided i didnt like it,lost interest in it and mothballed it.
Had time to re-think on it again,so dragged it all out,rattle-canned it satin black,and half heartedley threw it together,did a couple of rallies on it, but really didnt have the time to really do it as i wanted.
