Back on the road for 1st time after 9 yr absence

Lots of time & dosh spent to get it looking & running ok, not the perfect restoration I'd hoped for but still think it tuned out ok.

Thanks glad it looks ok to other enthusiast too.
Engine wise I rebuilt it with slight oversize pistons, ground crank, all new bearings, head skimmed & valves re seated new valve guides & seals.
Jabbasport stage 4 charger rebuild, single 65mm pulley kit, jabba induction kit.
Ceramic coated manifold with adapted original down pipe to accept bastuck stainless exhaust.
New brakes all round, lots of powder coated bits including axle & struts, H&R lowering kit, new fuel tank. Full respray ( not the best, but was cheap)
