    Glad to see you took it as I meant it, not as a slating.

    Best thing you could do is strip all bodywork off and get that tank emptied and start working on changing oil etc . With a change of fuel and all other fluids and a new set of plugs etc it may just fire up with new fuel . Make sure you buy the best battery you can .

    could do with using copious amounts of wd40 and scrub it spotless . Pump the tyre up just to stop it falling over off stand too .

    of course if you tire of it I’d be willing to have it 😀

    seriously dont rush it . If you can get it on a paddock stand with something through chain eccentric adjusters so that if you turn over it doesn’t jump forward as clutch is likely to be gummed up .

    Good luck

    Thanks mate.

    I am hoping to get it into the workshop this week to start working on it. If I can get it firing with just doing the basics I would be over the moon!

    I really do appreciate everyone's help on here.

    Of course mate, hopefully within the next couple of weeks. I'll be very excited if I can get it going

    The bike doesn't look too bad considering it's been standing outside for soooooooo long. A wee bit tlc and a bit of luck and she'll be good as new in no time at all.

    Looking forward to the subsequent installments.

    Thank Laurence,

    Luckily for majority of the time it was outside it was in between his house and garage so was quite sheltered. But the last year it was more exposed and never had a cover over it.

    Dazz the video makes it look better than what it is haha! Lots of rusted bolts etc but nothing too bad. Once it's at my workshop and its firing ill be able to strip more away.

    On another note, does anyone know how to figure out if the Z25 gear & shaft has been upgraded?

    Welcome to TNT ownership. Great to see another being brought back to life.

    Spares can be sourced also at https://shop.motogb.co.uk/parts-catalogue

    A lot of there stuff is out of stock but if they’ve got it it’s usually with you in a couple of days. Most spares for the std 1130 will fit. It’s just the ancillaries that are different.

    Nice pipe btw, I had a Quill pipe on my first Tnt. Rare now as they’ve stopped making them.

    looking forward to the start up video

    Cheers Fred!

    Appreciate the help, i'm looking for the best battery i can find with a good cca value that will actually fit. I love the pipe too! I was going to make a separate video of it but don't want to bore people so will wait until it actually starts. The last owner did say it was very loud I emailed Bennetts and they confirmed that it was fitted by them.
