I received som parts form Bill in the US. I was especially looking for the left sidecover. It looks good.
I picked up a sealed 6v 12aH battery and thought I’d see what happens. To my surprise and delight it sparks and the lights work! I posted a video in the forum. http://puch.nortonfastback.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4
While cleaning the gunk/goo off the rear brake arm, I noticed that there was something behind the licence plate. Now we’ve stared at this bike for untold hours – poked it and noodled with it (not actually doing any real work on it) and never noticed.
I took off the top bolt and could see there was a plate below.
A nice Michigan plate. Much better looking and in better condition than the yellow 1970 plate.
Now I have a hole in the fender. I think this a a result of the aluminum plate rubbing on the steel. At least it is in a hidden location so I don’t have to kill myself fixing the hole.
