|Here are before and after pictures of the restoration of a wartime motorcycle.|
It's "Nick and Steve's project," and we watch as they work on the bike from May, 2012 to February 2013.
It is a remarkable transformation. It takes the WD/CO from the civilian appearance it was upgraded to as war surplus back to how it looked in uniform when built.
The two men show their pride in their progress as they go, step-by-step.
Nicely done. It's only a shame that they couldn't have the motorcycle both ways: in wartime dress and with the charming (but downbeat) patina it earned in civilian service.
Take a look at the video:
