Dear ABC Community

I am pleased to be able to share with everyone that the restoration/rebuild of my ABC 3hp motorcycle, WA 2535, is finished!

A big thankyou to all those who helped with information and guidance over the last 4 years and I am really pleased to have reached a point where I can think about riding it.

So a couple of pictures below for your entertainment. The first is from way back at the end of December 2017 and was taken the day after "WA" arrived and in the company of my Rudge-Bradshaw Special.



The next two pictures are of the end results




All I have to do now is learn how to start "WA" easily and repeatably. I have ridden the machine around the block and under control, but it did take a lot of pushing to get it going. So any tips from you veterans would be appreciated.

Phil

ABC's are usually easy starters so I'm sure it's nothing too daunting

Dear All

After a fair bit of head scratching "WA" is now starting easily and when required. For proof below is a short clip of our heroic test pilot and "WA" doing their thing.
