how it should be done!

Kev's bike,my NSU,AND SHIT

First of all Kevs bike,i have fitted a lot of old cb parts to this,all it needs is the seat pan covering,electrics,and a few bits,and my NSU ,I  have started on the frame and made the rear section ,it now needs polishing and the frame put back on my jig,i have got some original cb 750 clocks for my cafe racer and a old headlamp,i think it will turn out good,I better take the 8cyl NSU out of the cupboard in the house before my wife finds it also!!
