    Looks like fun. Think I recognice that rats nest of wiring from my old jawa 350 twin. everything the same colour and attached using individual spade connectors. If you can get it going it will be full of character thats for sure

    well ive stripped it down now engine and gears are free so thats a bonus however there is wo wiring left that isnt burnt to peices i have been told that a owner from back in the early 80s had tried wiring loads of headlights to it hence the epic 3 core shotty wiring so i can assume its been completelly dead since...lol
    i will upload photos as i go on this one but this project may take quite a while due to the lack of spares available

    check out some classic bike forums, someone will be able to help you, the thing with old bikes its often easier to make your own parts. look forward to seeing this project progress.

    cheers mate yeah i believe you can swap parts over etc ive heard the likes of the wiring loom is almost the same may need tinkering with tho but it will be better than making my own from trailer cable i atempted this once it was a nite mare lol

    i can have a hunt at work if you get REALLY stuck, although it will cost a fortune for me to send part to you

    that would be great spending money on parts n postage is better than not being able to find whats needed

    personally -
    I would strip it right down to the shell/frame. modern engine, modern wiring loom etc etc but keep it looking old. parts availability with the right engine etc would then be better. just a suggestion. I get the whole keeping it original thing but if parts are that hard to find, why not modern build it.

    Kinda defeats the purpose,i'd think,resurecting a token of motircycling history,
    why not go whole hog & just buy modern,?.;)............. .
    seen alot of u-tubes on old/rare/experimental re-surrections,alots down to commitement,or how far your willing to go,to get what you want.:).

    Can you post a photo of the rusted ones? Looking at the shapes on the rear panels, they look as if they had something like VW Beetle indicators attached.

    Sounds like you could be focusing genuine/or/as close to(spares) search in countries that are still mostly relying on more older designs(not as hung up on emission,etc.).,
    have a few projects on the go/self -
    might wanna check the asian route.industrious+flexible little b.....s ,so they are.;).mk.

    Hands started itching as soon as i saw the first photo.
    Me, i'd sort the engine first, there are a lot of engineers out there that can re-make the old parts from new materials, and the cast parts, if the crank needs doing, send it to SEP at Kegworth for their expert opinion, they did the crank on my CBX750 some years ago, came back brand spanking new. Coils/Genny can be re-wound, loom will be a labour of love, but should be do-able, might have to peruse other close matched diagrams.
    Body, piece of cake, mostly metal, ooohhh the mind is racing.................
