Hi, I'd just like to say hello to the community. I've inherited a silver engine model Beamish 250 from my late brother among other bikes. I've had a quick look round the bike in the workshop and it appears to be in reasonably complete, original, if 'stood for years' condition. However lifting the barrel the big end has partially heat seized and will require a rebuild with con rod kit. My plan is to do a strip down, re-build in road trim and road register over the next few months. Then to get a few miles on her round the local lanes. I'll no doubt be on the forum asking for advice over the coming months. Best wishes, Ray.
