Cool idea but you don't wanna use Hinkley parts on your Meriden . There are other spots you can get really good parts to caffe your 72 out . BritishOnly.com , glassfromthepast.com , Rabers , and one other spot in Connecticut , even the Royal Enfield site all make parts for your bike or can fit your bike at a way less than you can buy the Hinkley stuff. Plus having a Thruxton IMO you'd be better using those guys . When I start my 76 T-140 project those are the guys I'll be going to. Can't wait to wrap up the Honda. I'll post pics soon.
