Finally picked up the N1 today Although I'm gonna restore it I thought I'd see what I'm up against first I found that the cdi was missing along with the temp sender,carbs balance pipe,self cancelling unit and carbs retaining clips It got me wondering what state the engine and electrics were in I borrowed the cdi from my F1 build,fitted the other missing parts along with an aux petrol tank Then set about trying to fire it up Happy to say after about 50 kicks it burst into life and all the electrics seem to work It's misfiring a bit on the right side but sweet when firing it sounds ok Here's a pic of it on eBay
Here's a pic of it running
Although the seat will be replaced in red,I had to remove them hideous Yamahas
I've already sent an N1 body kit to Cordwells so won't have to wait for it like usual Cheer Matt
Cheers mate it will look a whole lot better when it's finished Matt
Hi mate There old parts degreased,buffed on a wire wheel and replated Matt
I wish mine were good enough to clean up sadly every other nut bolt was seized up rusty and rotten every other bolt had to come out with a not so easy out. I think if wire brushed them out of the vinegar bath I would loose 2mm on the sides of each one ! Gotta say your bikes gonna be looking good with all the new bling. Good luck with the build good thread to follow !
