    Recently acquired this beutiful bike. With 11.6k miles it is good
    condition. Has been sitting outside under a tarp for 12yrs. Needs

    I don't know much about the Ascot and need help. Tips and tricks on
    restoration, etc.

    Just one: Sell it to me and I'll put the motor into my VT500E
    frame! :-D

    I think that there's a PDF service manual out there somewhere, apart
    from that it's pretty much the same as restoring any other
    motorcycle. The shaft drive is nice.

    I suggest you get onto the Thumper email list, see

    There are bods with Ascots there and a hell of a lot of expertise and
    helpful people. Low volume list.
