Hi Brian

I think we met briefly at the RaceRetro show and chatted about Historic Karting. Glad to see you have a project underway. If you start a restoration blog under the 'show your kart thred' and post some photos you will probably get lots of advice and offers of parts.

I've just finished restoring a Zip Silverstone 72 very similar to yours although I have a Bultaco engine installed (thred in show your kart). I think you have mounts for a Villiers? Are you going to fit a Villiers engine? There are a few about although you my need a crowbar to prise them out of some of the members sheds!

Come along to Donnington as there will be a big turnout and sure to be some Silverstone's - and we are sharing the Melbourne Loop with the Rally boys!
