Old man bought

a KH250 to get to work on so that's what I learnt on. Next was the S1 version apparently better barrels and porting so I swapped the top end over. Then came the H1 and the insane H2 after nearly putting the fooking thing through a shop window I moved over to four strokes. BSA Bantam, Cossack 650 (inc side car) ,Z900 and many many more.

Pedantically yours, Shad.

It had electric start, but NO starter motor......  as such. Put current INTO the generator, and it'll spin....  that's how it worked. :biggrin:
