Hello from me.
Very much in to road cycling these days but back in 83 I had a blue and silver Mk1 Ultra Burner before selling it to fund my first motorbike. I was thinking about getting a burner to relive my youth and stumbled across a mk1 second phase? Super Burner in someone's garage, they let me have it for nothing. It had been in there for nearly thirty years but it was a dry garage and the bike isn't too bad. Cleaned up reasonably nice and all works. Only thing missing is the badge and one fork bung. Initially it's cleaned up quite nice but I'm planning to do a full restore. There is quite a lot of the superchrome coming off. Looking forward to doing it and receiving help and advice from you all on here.

That is fantastic mate.This is the way resto's should be executed if the bike has not gone too far.Scratches, wear and tear all contribute to the bikes story also.I have restored five of my bikes like this and I love them.

A clean survivor is always more sought after than a resto.

Well done mate.
