In the early nineties Pop Blasdell contacted Dave to tell him of the whereabouts of the Seeley (unbeknown to Dave, Pop had been keeping track of the old girl) and Dave followed it up. After a few calls he discovered that Pop was right and the Seeley had a new owner.
The rebuild didn't start straight away as Dave had no engines, until 1994 when the opportunity arose to purchase three complete engines, but it was not plain sailing from then on either.
The frame had been modified slightly for a Suzuki T500 at some point, so the frame had to put back to standard, for then Dave to repeat the conversion once again some 35 years later.
At last the rebuild was underway!
