    Exclamation 654 Restoration


    Hi again everyone

    Im still (slowly) restoring my 1980 654 - I dont realy want or can afford to replace the handlebar electrics, as mine are in reasonable contition apart from the lettering - so I have a question can anyone tell me how to restore the lettering which is very faded - Ive looked at dry transfer lettering like letraset but it seems no longer available and rare and the only wet transfer lettering I can find is for plastic models anyone got any brilliant Ideas ??
    Thanks !

    Ray.

    Hi Ray,
    I don’t know how to restore the lettering on your switches, BUT, there are some second hand 654 switches for sale in the classifieds section which might be of use to you.

    654 Restoration

    Hi Richard

    I appreciate your reply but Ive ended up buying new switch assemblies despite having two or three of everything I need (apart from engine ) that I need for my restoration. Whilst examining all the switches I have they all had one problem or another so I decided new was the only solution. I will be glad when I can get on more so I can sort out all the "duplicates" I have to sell and hopefully recoup a little of the rebuild costs !!
