Rough ‘n’ Ready

Although the swap meet didn’t conjure up any parts for the Cub project there was a couple of there little marvels to have a deek at. This one was in mild track form with big tires, alloy rims, no front fender and a few choice engine additions that I now know are sought after .


On sale for two grand; not quite in a budgetary shape to be a parts bike but I’m sure it’ll make someone a worthy project. Nevertheless photos of assembled examples give me a knowledge as to how things fit together.


The valve covers have fins for additional cooling, probably a Webco item which themselves have become var nigh  impossible components to find now bringing up to fifty quid apiece… I’ll stick to the common or garden variety where I can saving pennies for more important items.
