Now that the AS1 is in pieces the AS2 is back on the workbench! The front fork with its wheel have been fitted to the frame, next up on the schedule is the engine.
The crankcase for the bike have been fully restored by Smethurst and is ready to be put together. We’ve got a brand new stator for the bike as well as new cylinders, pistons and cylinder heads.
The wheels for the AS2 are assembled, again they”re made of? entirely NOS parts.
The work is coming along nicely on the AS2J, the front footrest and stand, the front fork and the horn are in place. An important thing to remember is to put the spring for the stand in place before attaching the front footrest assembly to the bike, otherwise it’s next to impossible.
Now that the CS5 is in pieces the construction of the AS2 can begin, so far the frame, swing and stand are in place with much more to come.
