Great design mix and engine choice. Looks good and good quality. A slightly salty, niche maket price of £16k. Enjoyed the video. Thanks for sharing, Steve.

£16,000 for a tarted up Bullet? Wonders will never cease. Maybe I'm wasting my time restoring "classics" and should make a hipster / bobster / whatever......

MMMMmmmm,  :-\ 

Have to agree with Ian over the price and the "bobbed" mudguards, the SH!TE will just stick in a stripe up your back.

Hossack front end would be a must for any "special" I was to lash the cash on.

Good health, Bill

I'm with Ian and Bill I'm afraid. A slow and unreliable engine in a silly chassis. Not for me I'm afraid.
