Default Engine in

The 325 engine is now back in the frame after a bit of huffing and puffing, thank God my son is strong.
Interestingly once all the engine mounts are bolted up I now only have the large hole left for the clutch cable. Any thoughts?

Default Nice looking 325 EC

Stan sent me a photo of his friends 325 East Coaster, inspiration for him to get his sorted.

Yes, that's the one John. Thanks for posting this, Tony. Must try and move my EC up the list of "projects".

Default Coils

New coils fitted, I found a bit of scrap metal that was just right for holding them. Tank fits over them okay, though if you crouch down you can see part of the rear coil below the tank. Presumably as the fixing bracket is sloping down the tube. The later frames don't have the horizontal fixing plate so probably the coils would sit higher

Default Panniers

Panniers have been cleaned and the rack put on the bike to hold them. Obviously 1967 was a busy year as all three stickers are from that year.

Panniers are by Craven, a good quality make & used by the police. They are still in business https://www.cravens.org.uk/

Default Crashbars

When I was picking up a 1958 Hawkstone SAS for someone the other day I picked up the last part of the 325, the crash bars. Crashbars they are, as they are snapped at the bottom presumably where there was impact. I think the footrests are interesting, circa 1969 Easy Rider style - hardly a Harley Chopper, still each to their own.
If they weld up okay I will stick them on to complete the original look.
Perhaps they were used on this travels in 1967 around Canada?

Have you got the engine running yet Tony, were the solid alloy exhaust sealing rings OK?
