Restored 1977 Silk 700S Motorcycle.

The rare motorcycle was restored by its owner in 2011.

The Silk 700S was launched in 1975 and continued until 1978. Only two motorcycles a week came off the production line.

It featured a new engine based on the two stroke engine from the Scott Flying Squirrel in a specially designed steel tubular frame made by Spondon of Derbyshire.

The engine did not have a water pump, instead it used a thermo-syphon cooling system. Coolant in the cylinder jackets absorbed engine heat and rose by convection into the radiator.

The engine was stripped and rebuilt with new pistons and rings.

The frame was powder coated.

The wheels were rebuilt with new spokes.

The seat was recovered.

All of the chrome was re-plated and many other parts were replaced.

A rare and unusual Silk Motorcycle restored and back on the road.
