But you will see it has NFS markings on it..i.e WW2 era..its called 'preservation'

Hi Rob, yep, would look a lot nicer with a pair of 8" headlights but was keeping to the original spec. Normal lenses carried as well in case some light is needed. The bell should be painted black but that was too much!

I sincerely hope the tyres are not "preserved" too - driving around in the dark is bad enough, but not on seventy year old rubber!

I agree about the black bell - daft idea anyway...
