My restoration. I'm called Lofty because I spent so much time in the loft. Some of me is still there!

Aluminium welding a mounting block on the crankcase
The crankcase had a large chunk of aluminium missing from one of the mounting blocks. The restorer has welded it up using period aluminium so as to get the same alloy. This is a hugely skilled job and I'm delighted with the way it has turned out.
In the lower picture you are looking at the back of the crankcase looking forward. The left hand chassis rail bolts to the block that has been welded. The top surface of the crankcase is top right in the picture.
