Hi from sunny Manchester!!

Post  disco on Sun Jun 17, 2012 2:18 pm

Hi

Ive recently bought a cometa, ( even says cometa on the old style logbook) with the intention of restoring it , so be prepared for daft questions of me about this!

I bought it complete with just the airfilter and headcowling missing so hopefully ive got all of the hard to find parts.

Hopefully heres a photo of it!

...hey welcome aboard ! good luck with your project...you will get lots of help from this forum...

remember seeing this advertised and was very interested in it....

with more parts and knowledge available nowadays restoration/rusteration couldn't be more simple...?

...main problem you may be facing is stripping it down without destroying main components...?

removing main engine bolt,splitting crank & flange and removing rear hub...

go steady,seek advice and good luck !

we're here to help... Wink

Are you Darren groves by any chance??
Also you don't have a vega in M&m's in stretford do you? I was in there the other day and the owner said he had one in and maybe another on the way, which is odd as I never see anyone else round these parts on lunas , well since Dave booth lost interest anyways

So so you know, let's not go there.

Glad to see your into Vegas, you need any help just shout. Although I'm hardly an expert

I kind of remember you having one before in bits that you swapped with Mike?
