    Hi from a Newbie!

    Showing my age and total lack of knowledge on modern machinery here but I really struggled setting up my account just now on the 'how many cylinders on a Tornado' question. I thought - has to be two, whoops......

    To introduce myself am about two thirds through restoring a U.S. import 1968 350cc Benelli Wards Riverside. Currently priming all of the frame, tank etc in my home spray booth. Will leave the top coats to the experts.

    Be interested to know how many other 250/350 Wards Riversides exist in the UK if anyone knows?

    Cheers

    Andy

    Thanks for the welcome guys, very much appreciated. I'll be sure to post some pictures up as soon as I have 'em. The process is a bit long-winded but I am getting there. No problem with spares from the U.S. (at bargain prices too). One thing I am mindful of is that I want to use the bike and I'm not into concours stuff. It will be tidy but practical.

    Cheers

    Andy
