5.7. Introduction. This guide is produced to allow the author to collate the information needed to identify parts that I continue to acquire. I hope that this information is of value to other collectors. My interest is assembling bikes which are correct for the year and model. Whilst all the bikes are not necessarily “correct” I am always on the look out for the “correct” part. Like all addicts, I will never “be finished”. All Chapters of this guide are “works in progress” and so will be updated as new information comes to hand and time allows. I invite others to provide additional information and corrections. 5.8.
