Thread: A ring a ting ting .....

    A ring a ting ting .....

    So this guy walks into my workshop "Do you buy old bikes?" He asks .......

    Tucked up in his garage for 11 years ..... not more than 800 yards away from my workshop is where she sat.

    He's moving to a flat in Bournemouth and won't have the room for it.

    I walk round to his house for a look ... "When was the last time it ran?" I asked, He turned the key, prodded the starter button and alive she cried! The garage filled with glorious Two Stroke!

    1977 with a genuine 4700 miles backed up with every MOT back to it's first in 1979. It's been in his ownership for 16 years but off the road since 06.

    It's not perfect by a long way but it's absolutely 100% nut and bolt original. I rode it up the road and it pulls well and rides just like a 4700 mile should.

    It's not without a few small issues, the carbs needed a go through and the whole front brake system refreshed as it was full of what can best be described as muddy water!

    I'm in no way going to restore it, just make the best of what's there and ride it. It's all but finished now, I'm just going to clean up the forks and bolt it back together.

    Oh Great and Wise Deity, Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,

    Courage to change the things I can! And the wisdom to know the difference!

    I've not decided yet. I'll get it built back up and MOT'd and use it for a while, see if we get along, if not then I'll move it along I guess .....
