A True Barn Find

The Mountain Cub is a machine that looks at home in a rural setting. A patina of agricultural use, knobbly wheels ready for a nearby green lane into the fields and woods of countryside waiting to be explored. Fill up the true peanut-sized tank, kick ‘er over and rev the diminutive single into action and off you go! This image is a better inspiration for my rebuild than some shiny concours special needing spit ‘n’ polish and a mirror finish. I like the grubbiness of a farmhand who has just cleared out the midden and is off to milk the cows.
