Even better, today I had to deliver a sign down to Kirkby so I took it for an MOT and it passed with one advisory for a loose side panel.
Nearly took it without footrests though!

Exhaust side panel is rather melted, you can see were the previous owner put filler in.
If you have a reasonable white 350 side panel then let me know how much you want, I think they are around £45 new, not a massive amount but way too much for a bike that's going to be trail ridden.

Quite a few of them still about, the engine is more 'revvy' than the later SE model and they are a fair bit heavier but should make a good touring bike. They finished in '95 in the UK but must have continued for a couple of years after over there.

I may have an exhaust side panel in the loft but it will have different decals (if any)

New C&S sprockets fitted (14/46) and treated her to a new swingarm slipper, plus a new enduro model chainguard

She's worth it (thumbs)

If you have one Bob that'd be good, Stickers are no problem, I printed them as I'm a sign maker.
