The flywheels where skimmed on lathe,the only way to recover them due to the amount of corrosion

You did well to get it done in 6 months you normally have to spend years looking for the spares you need.

Nice early M type there, how did you manage to find the early carb to replace the missing one ? The carbs with vertical needle valve are like hens teeth....

Good to see someone else from up north...!

Cheers
