Red face 450 restoration

This is my 1974 Scrambler 450, bought last September, it'd been sitting in a garage for 30 years, it was complete and mostly original. It's had a front impact at some point, so the frame and forks were slightly bent, the front rim was from a Laverda of some sort.

It's since been re-chromed, polished, had a complete engine rebuild, new front rim was found. The rebuild is getting there, we've converted it to 12 volt.

There's probably 3-4 days work left in it before it's completed, not counting the painting, I can't wait to ride it! Just need to find the time to finish it now!

Nice, very nice! I use to ride one in the early 70's. That's what spurred this Icon purchase.
