  1. Long story short, after 35yrs off the road the Duke yesterday had its first 'good' run. She's a 250,non-desmo but with a race head on top, but my god it has legs. Anyway this has been a longgggg time coming (my father & myself have owned since the mid 90's). Its been sitting in boxes since the mid 70's, dad worked with the bikes owner for roughly 30+yrs. Sadly the owner died (in the mid 90's) & the owners wife asked my father if he wanted to buy it, we went 50/50.

  9. Kernel,
    It's been 'refreashed', the frame was leaning up against a shed covered in weeds, the motor was inside a cupboard in his garage, swingarm, forks, tacho etc.. was in boxes laying around in his garage.

    Yes the electrics was the hardest & longest part, i had nothing to do with that side of the build. The old man made up a new wire harness, we have bought many books/manuals of this bike & every manual has a different wiring diagram.

    Thanks guys/gals for your kind words.
