The carburettors have been refurbished, oil system filter converted to take modern type. Electric fan fitted for cooling system.

The rear suspension has been modified to accept “Koni” shock absorbers. A Moss modifiction. Rear dampers and “Andrex” in storage compartment. Unfortunately all receipts, history and paperwork were lost during a house move.
