    I've had my eye on one of these for a long time , childish mmm maybe but it will fit nicely amongst my growing collection
    and yes yet another thing to restore
    but does anyone know what it is ? and is it of any real interest ?
    did anyone have one as a kid ?

    ok this little project has been put on the back burner for a while so its time to reactivate its restoration
    as some of you know I've organized two honda stands at the end of the month at crystal palace (see events section)
    the kick n go will be part of the display so i need to get cracking
    here some picture of the latest up dates on work in progress

    the 3 frame section I've now painted and are awaiting new stickers
    most of the metalware has be cleaned up/restored I've just the 3 wheel to finish ,handle bar grips,chain ,brake cable and kick rubbers to go
    im also waiting on the front axle brake lever and kick pedal to return from the chromers
