1930's Fleet Special

This New Plymouth built Fleet Special, had
a very hard life as a track racer on the Western Springs
Speedway track. 
Apparently they would have some bike racing  on 
the track before the cars ripped up the track.
The frame was pretty battered and bruised, with many dents 
and repairs showing up once the paint was removed.
After many hours filling and sanding, the mighty
Fleet Special is once again ready for action.
The Fleet Special has a strong historical link in
it's home town of New Plymouth, with many local
riders riding them to victory in the classic
Round the Mountain race.

 This one is off back to New Plymouth
were it is going on display, and into a 
much deserved retirement.
