Hey Boz,

Good of you to help out at the Vet's fundraiser! By the way isn't that 1st M306 , with the repro coke bottle grips, the one that Coslett was selling back in Sept.

Regards,
Bill

Johan,

The VG 296 is modeled after another bike that I had restored years ago. That bike had the maroon base layer with and old OD paint coat discovered as the second coat and a blue coat of paint as the top coat of paint. Somewhere I have pictures of the original OD green paint on the bike. This matches to my 1942 VG 295 that I still have in my collection (On display in the pics) that started it's life with early war OD followed with a top coat of 1944 lusterless darker OD used post war through the Korean War.

Matter of fact the first M306 is the one I bought from Coslett earlier this year. A nice older restoration. I need to fine tune some of the restoration with parts and techniques that have better research behind them.
