1934 250cc Comet
« on: 28 Jan 2008 at 20:19 »
Sidecar Willy sent in these photos and message about his 1934 250cc Comet.

"Some photos of my restoration so far of my 1934 Comet. Still quite a bit to do. The mudguards are painted and ready to go on, the wiring still needs to be done. Fit  a few more bits...ie control cables, brake lever, battery carrier, the clutch /flywheel. I still have to do the ignition timing, set the tappets, tweak the carb. The petrol/oil tank is looking very nice...and awaits for the painter to finish of the coach lines round the blue panel. Cheers, Bill"

That looks to be coming along very nicely indeed. I just hope the performance of the machine isn't quite as underwhelming as lore would have it!

Yes I agree ..its a 250cc sidevalve and very heavy...plus I am no lightweight either so not that fast. Having said that I am not concerned about performance. Its an old machine that deserves a restoration.
